 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Union of A020714 and A198633. Essentially the same as A094958. For every n, a(1)^3 + a(2)^3 + a(3)^3 + ... + a(2*n-1)^3 is a cube. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..43. Wikipedia, Cube (algebra) Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2). FORMULA a(n) = ceiling((9 - (- 1)^n)*2^(floor(n/2) - 2)). a(n) = n + 2 for n <= 3; a(n) = 2*a(n-2) for n > 3. From Bruno Berselli, Aug 20 2013: (Start) G.f.: x*(3+4*x-x^2)/(1-2*x^2). a(n) = (16-(8-5*r)*(1-(-1)^n))*r^(n-6) for n>1, r=sqrt(2). (End) EXAMPLE a(9) = 40 because it is equal to 5*2^(4-1).
