Table of n, a(n) for n=1..16.

FORMULA

a(n) = A164055(n)-1.

a(n) = A072221(n)*(A072221(n)+1)/2 - 1.

a(n) = 35*a(n-1) -35*a(n-2) +a(n-3) = 9*A001110(n-1). G.f.: 9*x^2*(1+x)/((1-x)*(x^2-34*x+1)). [R. J. Mathar, Oct 21 2009]

EXAMPLE

324=18^2 is a perfect square and 325=A000217(25) is a triangular number. Therefore 324 is in this sequence.
