COMMENTS

The number of terms in the groups is given by A063196. i.e., 1, 3, 3, 5, 5, 7, 7, 9, 9, 11, 11, ...

Also the arithmetic mean of the n-th group is T(n), the n-th triangular number.

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n+1)*(2*n+1+(-1)^n)/4. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 19 2014

a(n) = a(n-1)+3*a(n-2)-3*a(n-3)-3*a(n-4)+3*a(n-5)+a(n-6)-a(n-7) for n>7. - Colin Barker, Sep 19 2014

G.f.: x*(x^4+8*x^3+6*x^2+8*x+1) / ((x-1)^4*(x+1)^3). - Colin Barker, Sep 19 2014
