COMMENTS

For n > 1, a(n) is square if and only if n-1 is in A081016.

a(n) and a(-n) give all numbers m such that 5*m-4 is a square. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 03 2016

LINKS

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

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1) + 10*n - 17, with a(1)=1. - Vincenzo Librandi, Nov 26 2010

From G. C. Greubel, Jan 30 2016 (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>3, a(1)=1, a(2)=4, a(3)=17.

G.f.: x*(1 + x + 8*x^2)/(1-x)^3.

E.g.f.: (5*x^2 - 7*x + 8)*exp(x) - 8. (End)

EXAMPLE

A081016(0) = 1 and a(2) = 2^2 = 4; A081016(1) = 6 and a(7) = 13^2 = 169; A081016(2) = 40 and a(41) = 89^2 = 7921; A081016(3) = 273 and a(274) = 610^2 = 372100; A081016(4) = 1870 and a(1871) = 4181^2 = 17480761. - Klaus Brockhaus, Oct 29 2008
