COMMENTS

Write 0,1,2,3,4,... in a triangular spiral; then a(n) is the sequence found by reading from 0 in the vertical upward direction.

FORMULA

a(n) = binomial(3*n, 2). - Zerinvary Lajos, Jan 02 2007

a(n) = (9*n^2 - 3*n)/2 = 3*n(3*n-1)/2 = A000326(n)*3. - Omar E. Pol, Dec 11 2008

a(n) = 9*n + a(n-1) - 6, with n > 0, a(0)=0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 07 2010

G.f.: 3*x*(1+2*x)/(1-x)^3. - Bruno Berselli, Jan 21 2011

a(n) = A218470(9n+2). - Philippe Deléham, Mar 27 2013

a(n) = n*A008585(n) + Sum_{i=0..n-1} A008585(i) for n > 0. - Bruno Berselli, Dec 19 2013
