COMMENTS

The members of this sequence are also the units' digits of the indices of those nonzero square numbers that are also triangular.

The coefficients of x^n in the numerator of the generating function form the periodic cycle of the sequence.

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

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+6*x+5*x^2+4*x^3+9*x^4) / ((1-x)*(1+x)*(1-x+x^2)*(1+x+x^2)).

a(n) = a(n-6) for n>6.

a(n) = 25 - a(n-1) - a(n-2) - a(n-3) - a(n-4) - a(n-5) for n>5.

For n>0, a(n) = A010879(A001109(n)) = A010879(sqrt(A001110(n))) = mod(A001109(n),10).

a(n) = (25-5*cos(n*Pi)-10*cos(n*Pi/3)-10*cos(2*n*Pi/3)-2*sqrt(3)*(3*sin(n*Pi/3)+5*sin(2*n*Pi/3)))/6. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jun 18 2016

EXAMPLE

The fourth nonzero square number that is also a triangular number is 204^2. As 204 has units' digit 4, then a(4)=4.
