Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Also indices of pentagonal numbers (A000326) which are also centered pentagonal numbers (A005891).

Also positive integers x in the solutions to 3*x^2 - 5*y^2 - 3*x + 5*y = 0, the corresponding values of y being A182432.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9,-9,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 9*a(n-1)-9*a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: x*(4*x-1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-8*x+1)).

a(n) = (6-(4-sqrt(15))^n*(3+sqrt(15))+(-3+sqrt(15))*(4+sqrt(15))^n)/12. - Colin Barker, Mar 03 2016

EXAMPLE

5 is in the sequence because the 5th centered triangular number is 31, which is also the 4th centered pentagonal number.

PROG

(PARI) Vec(x*(4*x-1)/((x-1)*(x^2-8*x+1)) + O(x^100))
