COMMENTS

Sequence found by reading the segment (5, 29) together with the line from 29, in the direction 29, 69,..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the triangular numbers A000217. - Omar E. Pol, Sep 04 2011

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

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*(2*n-1)*(2*n+1)-1.

a(1)=5, a(2)=29, a(3)=69, a(n)=3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 21 2012

From G. C. Greubel, Jul 15 2017:(Start)

G.f.: x*(-5 - 14*x + 3*x^2)/(-1 + x)^3.

E.g.f.: (8*x^2 + 8*x - 3)*exp(x) + 3. (End)

EXAMPLE

(1*3 = 3)+2 = 5; (3*5 = 15)+14 = 29; (5*7 = 35)+34 = 69; (7*9 = 63)+62 = 125; ...
