COMMENTS

From Colin Barker, Jan 06 2015: (Start)

Also indices of centered square numbers (A001844) which are also centered triangular numbers (A005448).

Also indices of centered octagonal numbers (A016754) which are also centered hexagonal numbers (A003215).

Also positive integers y in the solutions to 3*x^2-4*y^2-3*x+4*y = 0, the corresponding values of x being A001922.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (15,-15,1).

FORMULA

a(n+3) = 15*a(n+2)-15*a(n+1)+a(n). If x^2-3*y^2=1 with x even then a() =(y+2)/4 evidently related to A001570 by: add 1 and halve.

G.f.: x*(x^2 - 8*x + 1)/(-x^3 + 15*x^2 - 15*x + 1). - Alexander R. Povolotsky, Feb 15 2009

a(n) = (4+(7-4*sqrt(3))^n*(2+sqrt(3))-(-2+sqrt(3))*(7+4*sqrt(3))^n)/8. - Colin Barker, Mar 05 2016

f:= gfun[rectoproc]({a(n+3)=15*a(n+2)-15*a(n+1)+a(n), a(1)=1, a(2)=7, a(3)=91}, a(n), 'remember'):

seq(f(n), n=1..30); # Robert Israel, Jan 01 2015

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := (Simplify[(2 + Sqrt@3)^(2 n - 1) + (2 - Sqrt@3)^(2 n - 1)] + 4)/8; Array[f, 17] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Oct 28 2010 *)
