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
