This is my third version of the Julianthemath number (since Nehushtan got the rule of my sequence).

It is the sum of 2 consecutive square numbers, and 2 consecutive triangular numbers, minus the 2 square roots and 2 triangular roots. Here, for simplification :

S = Square

SR = Square Root

T = Triangular

TR = Triangular root

This is also called the : Squmintrius number (complex, right? )

Examples :

1. ( (1+4)-(1+2) ) + ( (1+3)-(1+2) )

( 5 - 3 ) + ( 4 - 3 )

2 + 1

3, a Squimintrius number

2. ( (4+9)-(2+3) ) + ( (3+6)-(2+3) )

( 13 - 5 ) + ( 9 - 5 )

8 + 4

12

3. ( (9+16)-(3+4) ) + ( (6+10)-(3+4) )

( 25 - 7 ) + ( 16 - 7 )

18 + 9

27

So, the Squimintrius sequence is : 3, 12, 27... So, what's the pattern here?

That second number should be 12 not 11.

How about this sequence:

-2, -1, 8, 31, 74, 143, 244, 383, 566, 799...

Guess the pattern.

Don't know. Maybe you should post it in "Berliner's number 1", or something

Thanks. By the way the formula was:

a(n) = n^3-2n^2-1

Continue this sequence and find the general form:

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,...

Did you check the OEIS?

There are many possible answers that OEIS gives. But not all are the ones I am looking for.

It could be a new sequence. I would like very much to see a few more terms. Can you compute them?

This one:

1,5,4,22,26,86,...

on the other hand, is a new one. Or at least is not in the OEIS.

Do you want just the terms or the reccurence?

Hi;

The recurrence? Of course, provide it!
