 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The rule "jump over next something" can be varied, see A075694, A075695. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..8. FORMULA a(1)=1, a(n) = 2*(a(n-1)+1)^2 - a(n-1). EXAMPLE a(1)=1; next square is (a(1)+1)^2=4; "jump over" it: 4+(4-1)=7; a(2)=7; next square is (a(2)+1)^2=64; "jump over" it: 64+(64-7)=121. MAPLE a(1) := 1; a(n) := 2*(a(n-1)+1)^2-a(n-1); CROSSREFS Cf. A075694, A075695.
