COMMENTS
Also, sequence found by reading the segment (0, 1) together with the line from 1, in the direction 1, 18, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the triangular numbers A000217. - Omar E. Pol, Apr 26 2008
This sequence does not contain any triangular numbers other than 0 and 1. See A188892. - T. D. Noe, Apr 13 2011
Also sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 18, ... and the parallel line from 1, in the direction 1, 51, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 18-gonal numbers. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 18 2012
Partial sums of 16n + 1 (with offset 0), compare A005570. - Jeremy Gardiner, Aug 04 2012
All x values for Diophantine equation 32*x + 49 = y^2 are given by this sequence and A139278. - Bruno Berselli, Nov 11 2014
This is also a star enneagonal number: a(n) = A001106(n) + 9*A000217(n-1). - Luciano Ancora, Mar 30 2015

FORMULA
G.f.: x*(1+15*x)/(1-x)^3. - Bruno Berselli, Feb 04 2011
a(n) = 16*n + a(n-1) - 15, with n > 0, a(0) = 0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 06 2010
a(16*a(n)+121*n+1) = a(16*a(n)+121*n) + a(16*n+1). - Vladimir Shevelev, Jan 24 2014
E.g.f.: (8*x^2 + x)*exp(x). - G. C. Greubel, Jul 18 2017
Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = ((1+sqrt(2))*Pi + 2*sqrt(2)*arccoth(sqrt(2)) + 8*log(2))/14. - Amiram Eldar, Oct 20 2020
Product_{n>=2} (1 - 1/a(n)) = 8/9. - Amiram Eldar, Jan 22 2021
