COMMENTS

Unit together with numbers of form (6*n+5)^2.

Sequence may be obtained by starting with the segment (1, 25) followed by the line from 25 in the direction 25, 121,... in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 20-gonal numbers. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 29 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = A016970(n-1), n >= 1.

G.f.: (49*x^2 + 22*x + 1)/(1 - x)^3. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 27 2013

a(n) = 6*A033579(n) + 1. - Miquel Cerda, Jul 28 2016

a(n) = 36n^2 - 12n + 1. - Omar E. Pol, Jul 28 2016

EXAMPLE

a(0)=1 because (6*0-1)^2=1, a(1)=25 because (6*1-1)^2=25.
