FORMULA

a(n) = A162796(n) - A162795(n).

EXAMPLE

Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Feb 22 2010: (Start)

If written as a triangle:

1;

1,5;

1,5,5,17;

1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49;

1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49,5,17,21,49,21,53,81,129;

1,5,5,17,5,17,21,49,5,17,21,49,21,53,81,129,5,17,21...

Rows converge to A173464.

(End)

Contribution from Omar E. Pol, Apr 01 2011 (Start):

It appears that the final terms of rows give A000337.

It appears that row sums give A006516.
