COMMENTS

Second differences are all 3.

Related to the sequence of odd numbers A005408 since for these numbers the first differences are all 2.

Column 2 of A114202. - Paul Barry, Nov 17 2005

Equals third row of A167560 divided by 2. - Johannes W. Meijer, Nov 12 2009

A242357(a(n)) = n + 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 11 2014

Also, this sequence is related to A011379, for n>0, by A011379(n) = n*a(n) - Sum_{i=0..n-1} a(i). - Bruno Berselli, Jul 08 2015

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+2*x^2)/(1-x)^3.

Recurrence: {u(1) = 3, u(2) = 8, (n+3)*u(n+3)+(-5-n)*u(n+2)*(-2+2*n)*u(n+1) +(-2-2*n)*u(n), u(0) = 1}.

a(0)=1, a(n) = a(n-1)+3n-1, n>0; a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} C(n, k)C(2, k)J(k+1), J(n) = A001045(n). - Paul Barry, Nov 17 2005

Binomial transform of [1,2,3,0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Apr 23 2008

EXAMPLE

The sequence of first differences delta_a(n) = a(n+1) - a(n) is: 2,5,8,11,14,17,20,23,26,...

The sequence of second differences delta_delta_a(n) = a(n+2) - 2*a(n+1) + a(n) is: 3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,... E.g. 78 - 2*58 + 41 = 3.

MAPLE

a := proc (n) local i, u; option remember; u[0] := 1; u[1] := 3; u[2] := 8; for i from 3 to n do u[i] := -(4*u[i-3]-8*u[i-2]-2*u[i-1]+(-2*u[i-3]+2*u[i-2]-u[i-1])*i)/i end do; [seq(u[i], i = 0 .. n)] end proc;
