Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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, 5, ... . The spiral begins:

a(n) is the sum of n consecutive integers starting from 4*n+1: (5), (9+10), (13+14+15), ... - Klaus Purath, Jul 07 2020

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