COMMENTS

More generally, the ordinary generating function for the squares of k-gonal numbers is x*(1 + (k^2 - 5)*x + (4*k^2 - 18*k + 19)*x^2 + (k - 3)^2*x^3)/(1 - x)^5. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Apr 13 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A000326(n)^2.

G.f.: x*(1+20*x+29*x^2+4*x^3)/(1-x)^5. [Colin Barker, Feb 14 2012]

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Apr 13 2016: (Start)

E.g.f.: x*(4 + 46*x + 48*x^2 + 9*x^3)*exp(x)/4.

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5). (End)
