COMMENTS

a(n) is the largest number that is not the sum of distinct numbers of form kn+1, k >= 0. - David W. Wilson, Dec 11 1999

Sum of the nontriangular numbers between successive triangular numbers. 1, (2), 3, (4, 5), 6, (7, 8, 9), 10, (11, 12, 13, 14), 15, ... Sum of the terms in brackets. Or sum of n consecutive integers beginning with T(n) +1, where T(n) = n(n+1)/2. - Amarnath Murthy, Aug 27 2005

Apparently this is also the splittance (as defined by Hammer & Simeone, 1977) of the Kneser graphs of the form K(n+3,2). - Felix Goldberg (felixg(AT)tx.technion.ac.il), Jul 13 2009

Row sums of triangle A159797. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 24 2009

The same results occur when one plots the points (1,3), (3,6), (6,10), (10,15), and so on, for all the triangular numbers and finds the area beneath. Take three consecutive triangular numbers and label them a, b, c; the area created is simply (b-a)*(b+c)/2. Thus for 6,10,15 the area beneath the line defined by the points (6,10) and (10,15) is (10-6)*(10+15)/2 = 50. - J. M. Bergot, Jun 28 2011

Let P = ab where a and b are nonequal prime numbers > 1. Let Q=product of all divisors of P^n. Q can be expressed as P^k, where k = n*(n+1)^2/2. This follows from the fact that all divisors are of the form a^i*b^j, for i,j from 0 to n. An example is given below. In the more general case, where P is the product of m nonequal prime numbers, k = n*(n+1)^m/2. When m=3, the sequence is the same as A092364. - James A. Raymond & Douglas Raymond, Dec 04 2011

For n > 0: sum of n-th row in A014132, seen as a triangle read by rows. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 12 2012

Partial sums of A005449. - Omar E. Pol, Jan 12 2013

a(n) is the sum of x (or y) coordinates for an n X n  square lattice in the upper right quadrant of Z^2 whose corner points are (0, 0), (0, n), (n, 0), and (n, n). - Joseph Wheat, Feb 03 2018
