Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This sequence in related to A095794 by a(n) = n*A095794(n) - Sum_{i=1..n-1} A095794(i), for n > 1. - Bruno Berselli, Dec 28 2010

a(n) is the area of a triangle with vertices at points (n-1,(n-1)^2), (n,n^2), and ((n+1)^2,n+1). - J. M. Bergot, Jun 03 2014

Old name was: "Number of stacks of n pikelets, distance 3 flips from a well-ordered stack".

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+7*x-3*x^2+x^3)/(1-x)^4. Also, a(n) = 2*A002411(n) - 1 = A000578(n-1) + A001107(n). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 28 2010

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n > 4. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 08 2017
