COMMENTS

The sequence starts with a central dot and expands outward with (n-1) centered polygonal pyramids producing a great rhombicosidodecahedron. Each iteration requires the addition of (n-2) edge units and (n-1) vertices to complete the centered polygon of each face: centered squares, centered octagons and centered hexagons.

FORMULA

a(n) = 24*n^3 - 36*n^2 + 14*n - 1.

G.f.: x*(1+x)*(1+70*x+x^2)/(1-x)^4; a(n) = (2*n-1)*A069190(n). - Bruno Berselli, Jul 21 2011

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4); a(0)=1, a(1)=75, a(2)=365, a(3)=1015. - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 27 2011

a(n) = 72 * A000330(n-1) + A005408(n-1). - Bruce J. Nicholson, Feb 23 2019

E.g.f.: 1 + (-1 + 2*x + 36*x^2 + 24*x^3)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Feb 26 2019
