COMMENTS

First trisection of pentagonal numbers (A000326).

More generally, the ordinary generating function for the first trisection of k-gonal numbers is 3*x*(k - 1 + (2*k - 5)*x)/(1 - x)^3.

FORMULA

G.f.: 3*x*(4 + 5*x)/(1 - x)^3.

a(n) = binomial(9*n,2)/3.

a(n) = A000326(3*n) = 3*A022266(n).

a(n) = A211538(6*n+2).

a(n) = A001318(6*n-1), with A001318(-1)=0.

a(n) = A188623(9*n-2), with A188623(-2)=0.

Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 0.132848490245209886617568... = (-Pi*cot(Pi/9) + 5*log(3) + 4*cos(Pi/9)*log(cos(Pi/18)) - 4*cos(2*Pi/9)*log(sin(Pi/9)) - 4*log(sin(2*Pi/9))*sin(Pi/18))/3. [Corrected by Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 25 2016]
