Old name was: The lone multiple of n among the next n numbers.

Another old name: a(n) = n*floor((n+1)/2).

... Then sequence contains the multiple of n in the n-th row.

Interleaves A000384 and A001105. - Paul Barry, Jun 29 2006

Termwise products of the natural numbers and the natural numbers repeated.

Number of pairs (x,y) having the same parity, with x in {0,...,n} and y in {0,...,2n}. - Clark Kimberling, Jul 02 2012

Similar to generalized hexagonal numbers A000217. Other members of this family are A210977, A006578, A210978, A181995, A210981, A210982. - Omar E. Pol, Aug 09 2012

For even n, a(n) gives the sum of all the parts in the partitions of n into exactly two parts.  For odd n>1, a(n) gives n plus the sum of all the parts in the partitions of n into exactly two parts. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Nov 14 2013

Number of regions of the plane that do not contain the origin, in the arrangement of lines with polar equations rho = 1/cos(theta-k*2*Pi/n), k=0..n-1; or, by inversion, number of bounded regions in the arrangement of circles with radius 1 and centers the n-th roots of unity. - Luc Rousseau, Feb 08 2019

FORMULA

a(2*n-1) = n*(2*n-1), a(2*n) = 2*n^2.

From Paul Barry, Jun 29 2006; (Start)

G.f.: x*(1+x+2*x^2)/((1+x)^2*(1-x)^3);

a(n) = a(n-1)+2*a(n-2)-2*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5);

a(n) = n*(2*n+1)/4-n*(-1)^n/4. (End)

a(n) = n * ceiling(n/2). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Nov 14 2013
