COMMENTS

The number 1 is placed in the middle of a sheet of squared paper and the numbers 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc. are written in a clockwise spiral around 1, as in A068225 etc. This sequence is read off along one of the rays from 1.

Ulam's spiral (W spoke of A054552). - Robert G. Wilson v, Oct 31 2011

Also, numbers of the form m*(4*m+1)+1 for nonnegative m. [Bruno Berselli, Jan 06 2016]
