Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Geometrically, the partial sums of dodecahedral numbers may be interpreted as 4-dimensional dodecahedral hyperpyramidal numbers. It is somewhat surprising that this is (with proper offset) the triangular number of the "second pentagonal numbers, minus 1."

Also, the sequence is related to A004188 by a(n) = n*A004188(n)-sum(A004188(i), i=0..n-1). [Bruno Berselli, Apr 05 2012]

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-10,10,-5,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = sum(i=0..n) A006566(i).

a(n) = sum(i=0..n) i*(3*i-1)*(3*i-2)/2.

a(n+1) = A000217(A095794(n)).

a(n+1) = A000217(A005449(n) - 1).

a(n+1) = A000217(n*(3n+1)/2-1).

a(n+1) = A000217(A001844(n) - A000217(n+1) - 1).

a(n) = n*(9*n^3+6*n^2-5*n-2)/8. G.f.: x*(1+16*x+10*x^2)/(1-x)^5. [Colin Barker, Apr 04 2012]

a(n) = binomial(A005449(n), 2). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Oct 06 2013
