COMMENTS

A floretion-generated sequence relating truncated triangle and pyramidal numbers. The following reasoning suggests that (a(n)) may not be the result of some "arbitrary" addition of these sequences- it may possess some geometric meaning of its own: The FAMP identity: "jesrightfor + jesleftfor = jesfor" holds and was used to find the relation a(n) = 2*A051936(n+4)_4 + A051937(n+4)_4 . In the above case, "jesfor" returns the truncated triangular numbers (times -1); "jesrightfor" returns the truncated pyramidal numbers; and (a(n)) is given by "jesleftfor" (times -1). All sequences result from a Force transform of the sequence c(n) = n + 5 (c was not chosen arbitrarily, for details see program code). Specifically, the sequence (a(n)) is the (ForType 1A) jesleftfor-transform of the sequence c(n) = n + 5 with respect to the floretion given in the program code.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*A051936(n+4)_4 + A051937(n+4)_4 (for n = 0, 1, 2, 3, ) or a(m) = (1/6)(m^3 + 9m^2 - 46m - 6) = 2*A051936(m) + A051937(m) (for m = 4, 5, 6, ).
