Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,98,-98,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1)+98*a(n-2)-98*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5).

G.f.: -x*(x^2-5*x+1)*(x^2+14*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-10*x+1)*(x^2+10*x+1)).

EXAMPLE

10 is in the sequence because the 10th centered octagonal number is 361, which is also the 16th centered triangular number.
