### Julianthemath's number 3

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?

### Re: Julianthemath's number 3

That second number should be 12 not 11.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

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

Thanks. By the way the formula was:

Continue this sequence and find the general form:
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,...

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?

### Re: Julianthemath's number 3

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?

The recurrence? Of course, provide it!

The tensor operator does what here?

It represents the xor operation.
