COMMENTS

Positive numbers k such that 2*k+12 is a square. [Comment simplified by Zak Seidov, Jan 14 2009]

Sequence gives positive x values of solutions (x, y) to the Diophantine equation 2*x^3+12*x^2 = y^2. Corresponding y values are 8*A154560. There are three other solutions: (0, 0), (-4, 8) and (-6, 0).

From a(2) onwards, third subdiagonal of triangle defined in A144562.

Also, nonnegative numbers of the form (m+sqrt(-3))^2 + (m-sqrt(-3))^2. [Bruno Berselli, Mar 13 2015]

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: 2*(1 + x^3 - 2*x^2)/(1-x)^3.

a(n) = 2*A028872(n+1).

a(n) = a(n-1) + 4*n + 2 for n>1, a(1)=2.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 2*(4^2 + 2*4 - 2) = 44 = 2*22 = 2*A028872(5); 2*44^3 + 12*44^2 = 193600 = 440^2 is a square.
