Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

It appears that terms of the sequence are all given by a power of 2 times the cube of an odd prime or a power of 2 times a product of two distinct odd primes. (This has been verified for a(n) <= 10000.)

Apparently the integers that have exactly 4 odd divisors. (Verified for a(n) <= 187.) - Philippe Beaudoin, Oct 24 2013

Also numbers that can be expressed as the sum of k > 1 consecutive positive integers in exactly 3 ways; e.g., 7+8 = 15, 4+5+6 = 15 and 1+2+3+4+5 = 15. - Julie Jones, Aug 13 2018

EXAMPLE

15 is in the sequence because 15 = 15 - 0 = 21 - 6 = 36 - 21 = 120 - 105, where all operands are triangular, and in no other way.

PROG

(PARI) isok(n) = sumdiv(n, d, d%2) == 4; \\ conjectured, see Beaudoin comment, Michel Marcus, Oct 29 2013

(PARI) isok(n) = {v = vector(n, i, i*(i+1)/2); nb = 0; for (i=1, n, if (ispolygonal(i*(i+1)/2 - n, 3), nb++; if (nb > 4, return (0)); ); ); nb == 4; } \\ Michel Marcus, Jan 14 2014
