COMMENTS
Sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 2, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the triangular numbers A000217. Opposite numbers to the members of A033585 in the same spiral.
Twice decagonal numbers (or twice 10-gonal numbers). - Omar E. Pol, May 15 2008
a(n) is the number of walks in a cubic lattice of n dimensions that reach the point of origin for the first time after 4 steps. - Shel Kaphan, Mar 20 2023

FORMULA
a(n) = 8*n^2 - 6*n.
Sequences of the form a(n) = 8*n^2 + c*n have generating functions x{c+8+(8-c)x} / (1-x)^3 and recurrence a(n) = 3a(n-1) - 3a(n-2) + a(n-3). The inverse binomial transform is 0, c+8, 16, 0, 0, ... (0 continued). This applies to A139271-A139278, positive or negative c. - R. J. Mathar, May 12 2008
a(n) = A001107(n)*2. - Omar E. Pol, May 15 2008
a(n) = 16*n + a(n-1) - 14 (with a(0)=0). - Vincenzo Librandi, Aug 03 2010
From G. C. Greubel, Jul 18 2017: (start)
G.f.: (2*x)*(7*x+1)/(1-x)^3.
E.g.f.: (8*x^2 + 2*x)*exp(x). (End)
Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = Pi/12 + log(2)/2. - Amiram Eldar, Mar 28 2023
