COMMENTS

Each term equals the sum of three fourth powers and also twice a perfect square: n^4 + 2^4 + (n+2)^4 = 2*(n^2 + 2*n + 2^2)^2.

More generally, n^4 + k^4 + (n+k)^4 = 2*(n^2 + n*k + k^2)^2; in this case, k=2.

FORMULA

G.f.: (32 - 62*x + 118*x^2 - 58*x^3 + 18*x^4)/(1-x)^5.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 722 = 3^4 +2^4+(3+2)^4 = 2(3^2+3*2+2^2)^2 = 2*19^2.

a(13) = 79202 = 13^4+2^4+(13 + 2)^4 = 2(13^2+13*2+2^2)^2 = 2*199^2.
