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”).

A133312 a(n) is the first pentagonal number that is nontrivially the sum of two pentagonal numbers of the type P(p) + P(p+n) (we always have P(k) = P(0) + P(k)). 0

COMMENTS

The sequence is globally increasing with, at first sight, "unpredictible holes"; the regular values satisfy a(n) = (2523/2)*n^2 + (1189/2)*n + 70, which is approximately (35.5176013*n + 8.3690808)^2. In fact, we have to solve (6*k-1)^2 = 2*(6*p + 3*n - 1)^2 + 18*n^2 - 1 (Eq. 1) with given n that is X^2 = 2Y^2 + 18*n^2 - 1 where X = 6*k - 1 and Y = 6*p + 3*n - 1. p = 20*n + 5 and k = 29*n + 7 always give a solution of Eq. 1 but it is not certain that it is the best, i.e., the first.

EXAMPLE

a(0) = 70 because the first interesting relation is P(70) = P(35) + P(35), i.e., 70 = 2*35.

a(1) = 1926 because the first nonobvious relation is P(36) = 1926 = P(25) + P(26).

MAPLE
