 A030050 Numbers from the Conway-Schneeberger 15-theorem. 6
 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10, 14, 15 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The 15-theorem asserts that a positive definite integral quadratic form represents all numbers iff it represents the numbers in this sequence. "Integral" here means that the quadratic form equals x^T M x, where x is an integer vector and M is an integer matrix. - T. D. Noe, Mar 30 2006 Union of the first five triangular numbers {1, 3, 6, 10, 15} and their Möbius transform {1, 2, 5, 7, 14}, in ascending order. - Daniel Forgues, Feb 24 2015 REFERENCES Manjul Bhargava, On the Conway-Schneeberger fifteen theorem, Contemporary Mathematics 272 (1999), 27-37.

FORMULA From Daniel Forgues, Feb 24 & 26 2015: (Start) a(2n-1) = t_n = n*(n+1)/2 = A000217(n), 1 <= n <= 5; a(2n) = Sum{d|(n+1)} mu(d) t_{(n+1)/d} = A007438(n+1), 1 <= n <= 4. (End) EXAMPLE a(2*1) = Sum{d|(1+1)} mu(d) t_{(1+1)/d} = 1 * t_2 + (-1) * t_1 = 3 - 1 = 2; a(2*2) = Sum{d|(2+1)} mu(d) t_{(2+1)/d} = 1 * t_3 + (-1) * t_1 = 6 - 1 = 5; a(2*3) = Sum{d|(3+1)} mu(d) t_{(3+1)/d} = 1 * t_4 + (-1) * t_2 + 0 * t_1 = 10 - 3 = 7; a(2*4) = Sum{d|(4+1)} mu(d) t_{(4+1)/d} = 1 * t_5 + (-1) * t_1 = 15 - 1 = 14.
