 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS For n >= 1, a(n) is equal to the number of functions f:{1,2,3,4}->{1,2,...,n,n+1} such that Im(f) contains 2 fixed elements. - Aleksandar M. Janjic and Milan Janjic, Feb 24 2007 Equals binomial transform of [1, 13, 23, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1, ...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Apr 22 2008 First bisection of A005918. After 1, all terms are in A000408 (see Formula section). - Bruno Berselli, Feb 07 2012 Also sequence found by reading the segment (1, 14) together with the line from 14, in the direction 14, 50, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized octagonal numbers A001082. - Omar E. Pol, Nov 02 2012 Unique sequence such that for all n > 0, n*a(1) + (n-1)*a(2) + (n-3)*a(3) + ... + 2*a(2) + a(1) = n^4. - Warren Breslow, Dec 12 2014 REFERENCES Gmelin Handbook of Inorganic and Organometallic Chemistry, 8th Ed., 1994, TYPIX search code (229) cI2.
