COMMENTS

The defining formula can be regarded as an approximation and simplification of the expansion / propagation of native hydrophytes on the surface of stagnant waters in orthogonal directions; absence of competition / concurrence and of retrogression is assumed, mortality is taken into account. - [Translation of a comment in French sent by Pierre Gayet]

These are also the star 14-gonal numbers: a(n) = A051866(n) + 14*A000217(n-1). Luciano Ancora, Apr 04 2015
