 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Intersection of A000567 and A001105. - Michel Marcus, Jun 20 2015 LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..251 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9603,-9603,1). FORMULA G.f.: -8*x*(x^2+198*x+1) / ((x-1)*(x^2-9602*x+1)). EXAMPLE 8 is in the sequence because 8 is the 2nd octagonal number, and 2*8 is the 4th square.
