COMMENTS

a(n) has exactly n representations as a centered r-gonal number P(r,m) = 1 + r*m*(m+1)/2, with m > 1, r > 0.

a(n) appears n+1 times in A101321, due to the second column containing every positive integer.

a(n)-1 is the first appearance of n+1 in A007862.

EXAMPLE

a(4)=31, because 31 is a centered triangular number (A005448), a centered pentagonal number (A005891), a centered decagonal number (A062786), and a central polygonal number (A002061). No number less than 31 has 4 representations.
