COMMENTS

The fractional portion of each sum converges to 1/40 as n > infinity.
The corresponding sum for square roots of n is given by A014105 or n*(2n+1) with a fractional portion converging to 1/6.
See A248575 for the corresponding sums for the cube roots.
See A248621 for the corresponding sums of squares of the cube roots.
See A248698 for the corresponding sum of the fourth roots.
Conjecture: the corresponding sums for all fractional (rational) powers of n (e.g., 5/2, 7/2, 9/2, ..., 1/3, 2/3, 4/3, ..., 1/4, 3/4, 5/4, ..., 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, ...) will have polynomial integer formulas or recursive integer formulas for their floor, ceiling and/or rounded values, with convergence to a rational fractional portion, with possibly multiple fractional values in a repeating pattern as they converge. This was clear for some additional examples, less so for higherorder examples.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor( sum( j = n^2+1..(n+1)^21, j^(3/2) ) ).
a(n) = n *(4*n^3 + 6*n^2 + 5*n + 1)/2.
G.f.: x*(8 + 27*x + 12*x^2 + x^3)/(1  x)^5. [Bruno Berselli, Dec 03 2014]
