 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Also: Records sequence of A100181. The last (rightmost) term in the n-th row of triangle A120070 is A005408(n). LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2, 0, -2, 1). FORMULA First differences: a(n+1)-a(n)=A142954(n). a(n)=(n+1)^2-1 =A000466((n+1)/2) if n odd. a(n)= (n+1)^2-4 =A078371(n/2-1) if n even. a(n) = 2*a(n-1) -2*a(n-3) +a(n-4). G.f.: x(3-x+5x^2-3x^3)/((1+x)(1-x)^3). - R. J. Mathar, Oct 24 2008 EXAMPLE The odd terms of A120070 build the irregular triangle 3; 5; 15,7; 21,9; 35,27,11; 45,33,13; 63,55,39,15; The leftmost column defines this sequence.
