Contribution from Gary W. Adamson, Mar 02 2010: (Start)

Given the tetrahedral numbers, A000292, shift the offset to 0; then

(1 + 4x + 10x^2 + 20x^3 + ...)*(1 + 4x^2 + 10x^4 + 20x^6 + ...) =

(1 + 4x^2 + 14x^3 + 36x^4 + ...) (End)

FORMULA

a(2*k) = (4*k^2 + 24*k + 21)*binomial(k + 5, 5)/21 = A059600(k); a(2*k + 1) = 4*binomial(k + 6, 6)*(7 + 2*k)/7 = 4*A050486(k), k >= 0.
