COMMENTS

Partitions that are the same when regarded as 3-D objects are counted only once. - Wouter Meeussen, May 2006

Equals (A048141 + 3*A048140 - A000219 + 2*A048142)/3. - Wouter Meeussen, May 2006

EXAMPLE

From M. F. Hasler, Oct 01 2018: (Start)

For n = 2, all three plane partitions  [2], [1 1] and [1; 1] (where ";" means next row) correspond to a 1 X 1 X 2 rectangular cuboid, therefore a(2) = 1.

For n = 3, we have [3] ~ [1 1 1] ~ [1; 1; 1] all corresponding to a 1 X 1 X 3 rectangular cuboid or tower of height 3, and [2 1] ~ [2; 1] ~ [1 1; 1] correspond to an L-shaped object, therefore a(3) = 2.

For n = 4, [4] ~ [1 1 1 1] ~ [1; 1; 1; 1] correspond to the 4-tower; [3 1] ~ [3; 1] ~ [2 1 1] ~ [2; 1; 1] ~ [1 1 1; 1] ~ [1 1; 1; 1] all correspond to the same L-shaped object, [2 2] ~ [2; 2] ~ [1 1; 1 1] represent a "flat" square, and it remains [2, 1; 1], so a(4) = 4.

For n = 5, we again have the tower [5] ~ [1 1 1 1 1] ~ [1; 1; 1; 1; 1], a "narrow L" or 4-tower with one "foot" [4 1] ~ [4; 1] ~ [2 1 1 1] ~ [2; 1; 1; 1] ~ [1 1 1 1; 1] ~ [1 1; 1; 1; 1], a symmetric L-shape [3 1 1] ~ [3; 1; 1] ~ [1 1 1; 1; 1], a 3-tower with 2 feet [3 1; 1] ~ [2 1; 1; 1] ~ [2 1 1; 1], a flat 2+3 shape [3 2] ~ [3; 2] ~ [2 2 1] ~ [2; 2; 1] ~ [1 1 1; 1 1] ~ [1 1; 1 1; 1] and a 2X2 square with a cube on top, [2 1;1 1] ~ [2 2; 1] ~ [2 1; 2]. This yields a(5) = 6 classes. (End)
