COMMENTS

There are several sequences of integers of the form ceiling(n^2/k) for whose partial sums we can establish identities as following (only for k = 2,...,8,10,11,12, 14,15,16,19,20,23,24).

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,-3,3,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = round((2*n+1)*(2*n^2 + 2*n + 45)/168).

a(n) = floor((2*n^3 + 3*n^2 + 46*n + 60)/84).

a(n) = ceiling((2*n^3 + 3*n^2 + 46*n - 15)/84).

a(n) = a(n-14) + (n+1)*(n-14) + 80, n > 13.

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) + a(n-14) - 3*a(n-15) + 3*a(n-16) - a(n-17). - R. J. Mathar, Mar 11 2012

G.f.: x*(x^14 - x^13 + x^11 - x^10 + x^9 + x^5 - x^4 + x^3 - x + 1)/((x-1)^4*(x+1)*(x^6 - x^5 + x^4 - x^3 + x^2 - x + 1)*(x^6 + x^5 + x^4 + x^3 + x^2 + x + 1)). - Colin Barker, Oct 26 2012

EXAMPLE

a(14) = 0 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 8 + 9 + 11 + 13 + 14 = 80.
