COMMENTS

4th row of A082039, case k=3 of family T(n,k) = k^2n^2 + kn + 1.

a(n)^2 = 81n^4 + 54n^3 + 27n^2 + 6n + 1 = (24*((3*((3n^2 + n)/2)^2 + ((3n^2 + n)/2))/2) + 1). Therefore, (a(n)^2 - 1)/24 is a second pentagonal number (A005449) of index number equal to the n-th second pentagonal number. For example, a(30) = 8191 and (8191^2 - 1)/24 = (67092481 - 1)/24 = 2795520, the 1365th second pentagonal number. 1365 is the 30th second pentagonal number. - Raphie Frank, Sep 19 2012

For n >= 1, a(n) is the number of vertices in the hex derived network HDN1(n+1) from the Manuel et al. reference (see HFN1(4) in Fig. 8). - Emeric Deutsch, May 21 2018

4*a(n) - 3 is a square. - Muniru A Asiru, May 24 2018
