 OFFSET 0,2 LINKS Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 PlanetMath, Example of GCD FORMULA a(n) = gcd(f(n), f(n+1)) for all n. a(n) = n^2 + n + 1, except when n congruent to 3 modulo 7 when a(n) = 7(n^2 + n + 1). Conjectures from Colin Barker, Oct 06 2015: (Start) a(n) = 3*a(n-7) - 3*a(n-14) + a(n-21) for n>20. G.f.: -(x^20 +3*x^19 +7*x^18 +91*x^17 +21*x^16 +31*x^15 +43*x^14 +54*x^13 +64*x^12 +70*x^11 +504*x^10 +70*x^9 +64*x^8 +54*x^7 +43*x^6 +31*x^5 +21*x^4 +91*x^3 +7*x^2 +3*x +1) / ((x -1)^3*(x^6 +x^5 +x^4 +x^3 +x^2 +x +1)^3).
