COMMENTS

Dodecahedral gnomon numbers: first differences of dodecahedral numbers.

The sequence is related to other gnomon numbers of polyhedra, known by other more familiar names: triangular numbers (tetrahedral gnomon numbers), hexagonal numbers (cubic gnomon numbers), square pyramidal numbers (octahedral gnomon numbers).

A124388 = first differences; second differences = 27. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 30 2006

Sums of the triangular numbers from A000217(3*n-1) to A000217(3*n+1), with A000217(-1) = 0. - Bruno Berselli, Sep 04 2018

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n+1)*(3*(n+1)-1)*(3*(n+1)-2)/2-n*(3*n-1)*(3*n-2)/2.

G.f.: (1 + 16*x + 10*x^2)/(1 - x)^3. - Colin Barker, Mar 28 2012

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 19 because (1+1)*(3*(1+1)-1)*(3*(1+1)-2)/2-1*(3*1-1)*(3*1-2)/2 = 2*(6-1)*(6-2)/2 - 1*(3-1)*(3-2)/2 = 20-1 = 19.
