 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS This is the triangular equivalent of A008574 (square units forming perimeter of a square). The height of each triangle is n+1 units. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Michel Marcus, Illustration of initial terms Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1). FORMULA a(0)=1 and a(1)=4; thereafter a(n) = (n+1)^2-(n-2)^2 = 6*n-3. a(n) = 2*a(n-1)-a(n-2) for n>3. G.f.: (1+x)*(1+x+x^2) / (1-x)^2. - Colin Barker, Mar 20 2016 a(n) = A016945(n-1), n>1.
