FORMULA

a(n+1) = a(n) + 6*n + 2; see A016933.

a(n) = 3*n^2 - n - 1. - Paolo P. Lava, Oct 06 2008

G.f.: x*(1+6*x-x^2)/(1-x)^3. a(n) = A049450(n)-1. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 24 2008

a(-n) = A144391(n). - Michael Somos, Mar 27 2014

E.g.f.: (3*x^2 + 2*x -1)*exp(x) + 1. - G. C. Greubel, Jul 19 2017

From Leo Tavares, Dec 26 2021: (Start)

a(n) = A003215(n) - 2*A005408(n). See Bounded Hexagons illustration.

a(n) = A016754(n-1) - A002378(n-2). (End)
