LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..35.

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/3)*(16*n^3 + 36*n^2 + 26*n + 3).

G.f.: z*(27+z+5*z^2-z^3)/(1-z)^4.

a(n) = Sum(k*A143937(n,k), k=1..2*n+1).

EXAMPLE

a(1)=27 because in a hexagon we have 6 distances equal to 1, 6 distances equal to 2 and 3 distances equal to 3 (6*1+6*2+3*3=27).

MAPLE

seq((16*n^3+36*n^2+26*n+3)*1/3, n = 1 .. 35)
