COMMENTS

This is 5*n/2 if n is even, n if n is odd.

Partial sums give the generalized enneagonal numbers A118277.

a(n) is also the length of the n-th line segment of a rectangular spiral on the infinite square grid. The vertices of the spiral are the generalized enneagonal numbers. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 27 2018

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,0,-1).

FORMULA

a(2n) = 5n, a(2n+1) = 2n+1.

G.f.: x*(1+5*x+x^2) / ((x-1)^2*(x+1)^2). - Alois P. Heinz, Sep 26 2011

From Bruno Berselli, Sep 27 2011: (Start)

a(n) = (7+3*(-1)^n)*n/4.

a(n) = -a(-n) = a(n-2)*n/(n-2) = 2*a(n-2)-a(n-4).

a(n) + a(n-1) = A047336(n). (End)

Multiplicative with a(2^e) = 5*2^(e-1), a(p^e) = p^e for odd prime p. - Andrew Howroyd, Jul 23 2018
