FORMULA

a(n) = 3*n^2 + floor(1 + n*sqrt(3))^2.


EXAMPLE

1 = 3*1 + floor(1 + sqrt(3))^2,
4 = 3*4 + floor(1 + 2*sqrt(3))^2,
9 = 3*9 + floor(1 + 3*sqrt(3))^2, etc.
Moreover,
for n = 1, the unique (j,k) is (2,1): (2+1+1)^2  4*1 = 12*1;
for n = 2, the unique (j,k) is (3,4): (3+4+1)^2  4*4 = 12*4;
for n = 3, the unique (j,k) is (2,9): (2+9+1)^2  4*9 = 12*9.
