 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS a(n+1) is the total number of unit circles (on square lattice) enclosing a circle of radius n centered at (0,0), with intersections allowed. If intersections are prohibited the sequence would be {a(n+2)}. See illustration in links. - Kival Ngaokrajang, Jun 21 2014 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Kival Ngaokrajang, Illustration of initial terms Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,1,-1).
