Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Starting at n=1, a cube has an edge=2^(n+1)-3. The beginning cube has a value of 1 and is surrounded by 2^n layers of cubes each valued at 2^n. The sum of all cubes with values of 2^n is a(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = 29*a(n-1) - 252*a(n-2) + 736*a(n-3) - 512*a(n-4).

a(n) = a(n-1) + 7*2^(4*n-1) - 27*2^(3*n-1) + 27*2^(2*n-1), for n>0.

EXAMPLE

The first cubes has value 1=a(1). The second cube has 2 layers of cubes each valued at 2 surrounding the cube of value 1 to give (5^3-1)*2+1=249=a(2). Next surround by 2^2 layers of cubes each valued at 2^2: (13^3-5^3)*4+249=8537=a(3). Finally, surround by 2^3 layers of cubes each of value 2^3 to get (29^3-13^3)*8 + 8537 = 186073 = a(4).
