COMMENTS

Apart from the initial zero this sequence gives the 2nd pentagonal number, the 4th hexagonal number, the 6th heptagonal number, the 8th octagonal number, the 10th nonagonal number, etc. as well as the 5th nonnegative number, the 7th triangular number, the 9th square, the 11th pentagonal number, the 13th hexagonal number, etc. This is a reliable pattern that does not seem to appear on any other pairs of polygonal numbers (see link).

FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Aug 06 2016: (Start)

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n > 4.

G.f.: x*(5+8*x-x^2) / (1-x)^4.

(End)

a(n) = A033431(n) + A033428(n). - Omar E. Pol, Aug 09 2016

a(n) = A000290(n) * A005408(n+1). - Robert Israel, Aug 09 2016

a(n) = A320047(1, n, 0). - Kolosov Petro, Oct 04 2018

E.g.f.: x*(5 + 9*x + 2*x^2)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Oct 19 2018
