 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Also as a(n)=(n/6)*(5*n^2+1), n>0: structured pentagonal diamond numbers (vertex structure 6) (cf. A081436 = alternate vertex; A000447 = structured diamonds; A100145 for more on structured numbers). - James A. Record (james.record(AT)gmail.com), Nov 07 2004 Number of atoms in decahedron with n shells, number = 5/6*(n^3) + 1/6*(n) (T. P. Martin, Shells of atoms, eq.(3)). - Brigitte Stepanov, Jul 02 2011 a(n+1) is the number of triples (w,x,y) having all terms in {0,...,n} and x+y >= w. - Clark Kimberling, Jun 14 2012 a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} A215630(n,k) for n > 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 11 2012 a(n) - a(n-2) = A010001(n-1), for n>1. - K. G. Stier, Dec 21 2012 a(n) is also a figurate number representing a cube of side n with a vertex cut off by a tetrahedron of side n-1. As such, a(n) = A000578(n) - A000292(n-1), n > 0. - Jean M. Morales, Aug 11 2013 The sequence starting with 1 is the third partial sum of (1, 4, 5, 5, 5, ...) and the binomial transform of (1, 6, 10, 5, 0, 0, 0, ...). - Gary W.

Greubel, Sep 27 2015 Sum_{n>0} 1/a(n) = 3*(2*gamma + polygamma(0, 1-i/sqrt(5)) + polygamma(0, 1+i/sqrt(5)) = 1.233988011257952852492845364799197179252... where i denotes the imaginary unit. - Stefano Spezia, Aug 31 2023 MATHEMATICA Table[5*n^3/6+n/6, {n, 0, 80}] (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Apr 18 2011 *) PROG (Magma) [5*n^3/6+n/6: n in [0..50]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, May 15 2011 (Maxima) A004068(n):=5*n^3/6+n/6\$ makelist(A004068(n), n, 0, 20); /* Martin Ettl, Jan 07 2013 */ (PARI) a(n)=5*n^3/6+n/6 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 24 2015 CROSSREFS (1/12)*t*(n^3-n)+n for t = 2, 4, 6, ... gives A004006, A006527, A006003, A005900, A004068, A000578, A004126, A000447, A004188, A004466, A004467, A007588, A062025, A063521, A063522, A063523.
