COMMENTS

3-dimensional analog of centered polygonal numbers.

Sum of n triangular numbers starting from T(n), where T = A000217. E.g., a(4) = T(4) + T(5) + T(6) + T(7) = 10 + 15 + 21 + 28 = 74. - Amarnath Murthy, Jul 16 2004

Also as a(n) = (1/6)*(7*n^3-n), n>0: structured heptagonal diamond numbers (vertex structure 8). Cf. A100179 = alternate vertex; A000447 = structured diamonds; A100145 for more on structured numbers. - James A. Record (james.record(AT)gmail.com), Nov 07 2004

Partial sums of A069099, centered heptagonal numbers (A000566). - Jonathan Vos Post, Mar 16 2006

Binomial transform of (0, 1, 7, 7, 0, 0, 0, ...) and third partial sum of (0, 1, 6, 7, 7, 7, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Oct 05 2015
