COMMENTS

Second differences are all 3.

Related to the sequence of odd numbers A005408 since for these numbers the first differences are all 2.

Column 2 of A114202. - Paul Barry, Nov 17 2005

Equals third row of A167560 divided by 2. - Johannes W. Meijer, Nov 12 2009

A242357(a(n)) = n + 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 11 2014

Also, this sequence is related to A011379, for n>0, by A011379(n) = n*a(n) - Sum_{i=0..n-1} a(i). - Bruno Berselli, Jul 08 2015

The number of Hamiltonian nonisomorphic unfoldings in an n-gonal Archimedean antiprism. See sequence A284647. - Rick Mabry, Apr 10 2021

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

FORMULA

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

Recurrence: (n+3)*u(n+3) + (-5-n)*u(n+2)*(-2+2*n)*u(n+1) + (-2-2*n)*u(n) = 0 for n >= 0 with u(0) = 1, u(1) = 3, and u(2) = 8.

a(0) = 1, a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*n - 1 for n > 0; a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} C(n, k)*C(2, k)*J(k+1), where J(n) = A001045(n). - Paul Barry, Nov 17 2005

Binomial transform of [1, 2, 3, 0, 0, 0, ...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Apr 23 2008

E.g.f.: exp(x)*(2 + 4*x + 3*x^2)/2. - Stefano Spezia, Apr 10 2021

EXAMPLE

The sequence of first differences delta_a(n) = a(n+1) - a(n) is: 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, 23, 26,...

The sequence of second differences delta_delta_a(n) = a(n+2) - 2*a(n+1) + a(n) is: 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, ... E.g., 78 - 2*58 + 41 = 3.

MAPLE

a := proc (n) local i, u; option remember; u[0] := 1; u[1] := 3; u[2] := 8; for i from 3 to n do u[i] := -(4*u[i-3]-8*u[i-2]-2*u[i-1]+(-2*u[i-3]+2*u[i-2]-u[i-1])*i)/i end do; [seq(u[i], i = 0 .. n)] end proc;
