Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Row sums of number triangle A113128. - Paul Barry, Oct 14 2005

The Engel expansion of 1 + exp(1/8)*sqrt(2*Pi)*erf(1/(2*sqrt(2)))/5 = 1.2175306077808... - Benedict W. J. Irwin, Dec 16 2016

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..54.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1).

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 5, a(2) = 12; then a(n+1) = a(n) + 8, n>2.

G.f.: (1+x)^3/(1-x)^2; a(n)=8n-4+4*C(0, n)+C(1, n); a(n)=C(n+1, n)+3*C(n, n-1)+3*C(n-1, n-2)+C(n-2, n-3); - Paul Barry, Oct 14 2005

a(n) = A017113(n-1), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 12 2008

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 44 = 8 + a(5) = 8 + 36
