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) = A001304(n-4).

a(n) = round((2*n+1)*(2*n^2 + 2*n - 15)/240).

a(n) = floor((n+4)*(2*n^2 - 5*n + 6)/120).

a(n) = ceiling((n-3)*(2*n^2 + 9*n + 13)120).

a(n) = round(n*(n-2)*(2*n+7)/120).

a(n) = a(n-20) + (n+1)*(n-20) + 141, n > 19.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-3) + a(n-4) + a(n-5) - 2*a(n-6) + 2*a(n-8) - a(n-9) with g.f. x^4 / ( (1+x)*(x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x + 1)*(x-1)^4 ). - R. J. Mathar, Dec 12 2010

EXAMPLE

a(20) = 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 10 + 11 + 13 + 14 + 16 + 18 + 20 = 141.
