COMMENTS

Previous name was: Real part of (n + i)^3, companion to A080663.

Reversing the order of terms in (n + i)^3 to (1 + ni)^3 generates the terms of A080663. E.g, A080663(4) = 47 since (1 + 4i)^3 = (-47 - 52i). Or, (n + i)^3 = (a(n) + A080663(a)i) and (1 + ni)^3 = (-A080663(n) - a(n)i).

Also, numbers n such that the polynomial x^6 - n*x^3 + 1 is reducible. - Ralf Stephan, Oct 24 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = Re( (n + i)^3 ).

a(n) = n^3-3*n. a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+4*a(n-3)-a(n-4). G.f.: -2*x*(x^2-5*x+1) / (x-1)^4. - Colin Barker, Oct 16 2013

a(n)^2 = A028872(n)^3 + 3*A028872(n)^2 for n>1. - Bruno Berselli, May 03 2018

a(n) = A058794(n-2) for n>1. - Altug Alkan, May 03 2018

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 52 since (4 + i)^3 = (52 + 47i); where 47 = A080663(4).
