Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

FORMULA

a(n) = 8*n^2 + 7*n.

Sequences of the form a(n)=8*n^2+c*n have generating functions x{c+8+(8-c)x} / (1-x)^3 and recurrence a(n)= 3a(n-1)-3a(n-2)+a(n-3). The inverse binomial transform is 0, c+8, 16, 0, 0, ... (0 continued). This applies to A139271-A139278, positive or negative c. - R. J. Mathar, May 12 2008

a(n) = 16*n+a(n-1)-1 (with a(0)=0). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 03 2010

From G. C. Greubel, Jul 18 2017: (Start)

G.f.: x*(x+15)/(1-x)^3.

E.g.f.: (8*x^2 + 15*x)*exp(x). (End)
