COMMENTS
As n increases, this sequence is approximately geometric with common ratio r = lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/a(n-1) = (2+sqrt(3))^8 = 18817 + 10864*sqrt(3). - Ant King, Dec 13 2011
Dickson calls the terms "triangular, pentagonal and hexagonal" (all hexagonal numbers are also triangular). - Jonathan Sondow, May 06 2014

FORMULA
a(n) = 37634*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + 3136; g.f.: x*(1+3120*x+15*x^2)/((1-x)*(1-37634*x+x^2)). - Warut Roonguthai Jan 08 2001
a(n+1) = 18817*a(n)+1568+1358*(192*a(n)^2+32*a(n)+1)^0.5 - Richard Choulet, Sep 19 2007
From Ant King, Dec 13 2011: (Start)
a(n) = 37635*a(n-1) - 37635*a(n-2) + a(n-3).
a(n) = (1/48)*((2+sqrt(3))^(8n-5)+(2-sqrt(3))^(8n-5)-4).
a(n) = floor((1/48)*(2+sqrt(3))^(8n-5)).
a(n) = (1/48)*((tan(5*Pi/12))^(8n-5)+(tan(Pi/12))^(8n-5)-4).
a(n) = floor((1/48)*(tan(5*pi/12))^(8n-5)).
