COMMENTS

a(n) is the sum of cross multiplying integers in groups of 4, a(n) = (4n-4)*(4n-1) + (4n-3)*(4n-2). For example, the group 4,5,6,7 yields the sum 4*7 + 5*6 = 58 = a(2).

Sequence found by reading the line from 2, in the direction 2, 58, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 18-gonal numbers A274979. - Omar E. Pol, Apr 20 2021
