COMMENTS

a(n) is defined for any n in Z and a(-n) = a(n-6).

There are no primes or squares in the sequence because a(n) is a multiple of 7 and 7 is with multiplicity 1: a(n) = 7*((n+3)^2 + 4), and the factor (n+3)^2 + 4 is not a multiple of 7 for any n. A001032 gives the integers k such that the sum of k consecutive squares is a square.

FORMULA

a(n) = 7*n^2 + 42*n + 91 = 7*(n^2 + 6*n + 13) = 7*((n+3)^2 + 4).

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) = a(n-1) + 7*(2*n+7).

G.f.: -7*(5*x^2-7*x+4) / (x^3*(x-1)^3). - Colin Barker, Nov 12 2015
