 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The absolute value alternating sum of centered k-gonal numbers gives concentric k-gonal numbers. More generally, the ordinary generating function for the alternating sum of centered k-gonal numbers is (1 - (k - 2)*x + x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 + x)^3). LINKS OEIS Wiki, Centered polygonal numbers Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Centered Polygonal Number Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (-2,0,2,1). FORMULA G.f.: (1 - 23*x + x^2)/((1 - x)*(1 + x)^3). E.g.f.: (1/8)*(-21*exp(x) + (29 - 150*x + 50*x^2)*exp(-x)). a(n) = -2*a(n-1) + 2*a(n-3) + a(n-4). a(n) = ((-1)^n*(50*n^2 + 100*n + 29) - 21)/8.
