COMMENTS

Numbers k such that k*(k + 3)/4 + (k + 1)*(k + 2)/6 or k*(5*k + 3)/12 + 1/3 is a nonnegative integer. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 14 2017

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..59.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-2,2,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*n - 3 + (-1)^floor((n-1)/2).

From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 07 2016: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 + 2*x - x^2 + 4*x^3)/((1 - x)^2*(1 + x^2)).

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

a(n) = (1 + i)*(3*(n - n*i + i - 1) + i^(1-n) - i^n)/2, where i=sqrt(-1).

a(2*k) = A092259(k), a(2*k-1) = A087445(k). (End)
