 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Sums of all integers between successive central polygonal numbers: (1) 2 (3) 4,5,6 (7) 8,9,10,11,12 (13) ..., where the sums are taken over the terms not in brackets. Also for n >= 1, sum of 2n-1 consecutive integers beginning with A(n)+1, where A(n) = n(n-1) + 1. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1). FORMULA From Colin Barker, Aug 09 2017: (Start) G.f.: x*(2 + 7*x + 2*x^2 + x^3) / (1 - x)^4. a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n > 4. (End) EXAMPLE For n=2, A002061(2)=3, and a(2) = 4 + 5 + 6 = 15.
