Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(n) equals the number of vertices of the A256666(n)-th graph (see Illustration of initial terms in A256666 Links). - Ivan N. Ianakiev, Apr 20 2015

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

FORMULA

a(n) = A055998(n)*3 = (3*n^2 + 15*n)/2 = n*(3*n + 15)/2.

a(n) = 3*n + a(n-1) + 6 for n>0, a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 03 2010

G.f.: 3*x*(3 - 2*x)/(1 - x)^3. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Dec 24 2011

E.g.f.: (1/2)*(3*x^2 + 18*x)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 17 2017

From Amiram Eldar, Feb 25 2022: (Start)

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 137/450.

Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)/a(n) = 4*log(2)/15 - 47/450. (End)
