J. Mathar, Dec 12 2010 The conjecture is correct. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Feb 08 2012 a(n) ~ -27/8*n^2 - 27/8*n. - Ralf Stephan, Jun 16 2014 Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = (4/(3*sqrt(3)) - 1/3)*Pi. - Amiram Eldar, Aug 13 2022 MATHEMATICA Table[Numerator[(3 n + 1) (3 n + 2)/4], {n, 0, 50}] (* Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 14 2014 *) LinearRecurrence[{3, -6, 10, -12, 12, -10, 6, -3, 1}, {1, 5, 14, 55, 91, 68, 95, 253, 325}, 50] (* Harvey P.
