%N Indices of centered triangular numbers (A005448) which are also centered pentagonal numbers (A005891).

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

%C 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.

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

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

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

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

%Y Cf. A005448, A005891, A182432, A253654.
