COMMENTS

The round function is defined here by round(x)=floor(x+1/2).

There are several sequences of integers of the form round(n^2/k) for whose partial sums we can establish identities as following (only for k = 2, ..., 9, 11, 12, 13, 16, 17, 19, 20, 28, 29, 36, 44).

FORMULA

a(n) = round(n*(n+1)*(2*n+1)/102).

a(n) = floor((2*n^3 + 3*n^2 + n + 36)/102).

a(n) = ceiling((2*n^3 + 3*n^2 + n - 36)/102).

a(n) = a(n-17) + (n+1)*(n-17) + 105, n > 16.

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) + a(n-17) - 3*a(n-18) + 3*a(n-19) - a(n-20) with g.f. x^3 *(1+x) *(x^12 - 2*x^11 + 2*x^10 - x^9 + x^8 - x^7 + x^6 - x^5 + x^4 - x^3 + 2*x^2 - 2*x + 1) / ( (x^16 + x^15 + x^14 + x^13 + x^12 + x^11 + x^10 + x^9 + x^8 + x^7 + x^6 + x^5 + x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x + 1) *(x-1)^4 ). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 13 2010

EXAMPLE

a(17) = 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 10 + 12 + 13 + 15 + 17 = 105.
