COMMENTS

The first row of the array is the sum of 3 consecutive triangular numbers = A000217(n) + A000217(n+1) + A000217(n+2) = Centered triangular numbers: 3*n*(n-1)/2 + 1, for n>1. The second row of the array is the sum of 4 consecutive squares = n^2 + (n+1)^2 + (n+2)^2 + (n+3)^2 = A027575(n). The third row of the array is the sum of 5 consecutive pentagonal numbers.

FORMULA

a(n) = A[n+2,n] = P(k+2,n) + P(k+2,n+1) + P(k+2,n+2) + ... P(k+2,n+k-1) where P(k,n) = k*((n-2)*k - (n-4))/2.
