COMMENTS
From Floor van Lamoen, Jul 21 2001: (Start)
Write 0,1,2,3,4,... in a triangular spiral, then a(n) is the sequence found by reading the line from 0 in the direction 0,4,...
The spiral begins:
15
/ \
16 14
/ \
17 3 13
/ / \ \
18 4 2 12
/ / \ \
19 5 0---1 11

20 6---7---8---9--10

a(n) with n>0 are the numbers with period length 3 in Bulgarian and Mancala solitaire. - Paul Weisenhorn Jan 29 2022

FORMULA
a(n) = binomial(9*n,2)/9 for n >= 0. - Zerinvary Lajos, Jan 02 2007
a(n) = A049452(n) - A000326(n). - Zerinvary Lajos, Jun 12 2007
a(n) = 9*n + a(n-1) - 5 for n > 0, a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 04 2010
G.f.: x*(4 + 5*x)/(1 - x)^3. - Colin Barker, Feb 14 2012
a(n) = A218470(9*n+3). - Philippe Deléham, Mar 27 2013
a(n) = A000217(5*n-1) - A000217(4*n-1). - Bruno Berselli, Oct 17 2016
From Wesley Ivan Hurt, Dec 04 2016: (Start)
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n > 2.
a(n) = (1/7) * Sum_{i=n..(8*n-1)} i. (End)
E.g.f.: (x/2)*(9*x + 8)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Aug 24 2017
a(n) = A000326(3*n) / 3. - Joerg Arndt, May 04 2021
