Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) a(n) > 0 for all n. Moreover, for k >= j >=3, every nonnegative integer can be written as the sum of a generalized heptagonal number, a j-gonal number and a k-gonal number, if and only if (j,k) is among the following ordered pairs:

(3,k) (k = 3..19, 21..24, 26, 27, 29, 30), (4,k) (k = 4..11, 13, 14, 17, 19, 20, 23, 26), (5,6), (5,9), (6,7), (8,9).

(ii) For k >= j >= 3,  every nonnegative integer can be written as the sum of a generalized pentagonal number, a j-gonal number and a k-gonal number, if and only if (j,k) is among the following ordered pairs:

(3,k) (k = 3..20, 22, 24, 25, 28..30, 32, 37), (4,k) (k = 4..13, 15, 16, 18, 20..25, 27, 28, 31, 33, 34), (5,k) (k = 6..12, 20), (6,k) (k = 7..10), (7,9), (7,11), (8,10), (9,11).

EXAMPLE

a(60) = 1 since 60 = (-2)(5*(-2)-3)/2 + 1*(3*1-2) + 4*(7*4-5)/2.

a(279) = 1 since 279 = 3*(5*3-3)/2 + 0*(3*0-2) + 9*(7*9-5)/2.
