COMMENTS

The members of this sequence are also the units' digits of the indices of those non-zero 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.

LINKS

Index to sequences with 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).

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

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

EXAMPLE

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