COMMENTS

Consider the partitions of n into two parts (p,q). Then 2*a(n) represents the total surface area of the family of rectangular prisms with dimensions p, q and (p + q).

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{i=1..floor(n/2)} n*i + n*(n-i) + i*(n-i).

a(n) = floor(n/2)*(6*n^2+3*n-1+3*(n-1)*floor(n/2)-2*floor(n/2)^2)/6.

From Colin Barker, Apr 13 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x^2*(5 + 6*x + 13*x^2 + 3*x^3 + x^4) / ((1 - x)^4*(1 + x)^3).

a(n) = (14*n^3 + 3*n^2 - 2*n) / 24 for n even.

a(n) = (14*n^3 - 12*n^2 - 2*n) / 24 for n odd.

a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) - 3*a(n-3) - 3*a(n-4) + 3*a(n-5) + a(n-6) - a(n-7) for n>7. (End)
