Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

a(1) = 1, a(n+1) = sum of a(n) numbers beginning with a(n) + 1: a(2) = 2, a(3) = 3+4 = 7, a(4) = 8+9+...13+14 = 77. - Amarnath Murthy, Sep 07 2005

FORMULA

a(n) = A007501(n)/3 = A005449(a(n-1)). - Henry Bottomley, Oct 03 2001

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 7 so a(4) = 7*(3*7 + 1)/2 = 7*22/2 = 77.

MAPLE

P:=proc(q) local a, n; a:=1; print(a); for n from 1 to q do

a:=a*(3*a+1)/2;; print(a); od; end: P(10); # Paolo P. Lava, Mar 25 2014

MATHEMATICA

f[n_Integer] := n(3n + 1)/2; NestList[f, 2, 8]

PROG

(PARI) { a=2/3; for (n = 1, 12, write("b059406.txt", n, " ", a=a*(3*a + 1)/2); ) } \\ Harry J. Smith, Jun 26 2009
