COMMENTS

The cubic number sequence whose geometrical arrangement loses all vertices: this is a figurate number represented by a cubic lattice of n^3 equispaced points without vertices.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..40.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1).
