COMMENTS

The hexagonal lattice is the familiar 2-dimensional lattice in which each point has 6 neighbors. This is sometimes called the triangular lattice.

Also the number of triangles with vertices on points of the hexagonal lattice that have area equal to n/2. - Amihay Hanany, Oct 15 2009

Also number of 2n-vertex connected cubic vertex-transitive graphs which are Cayley graphs for a dihedral group [Potočnik et al.]. - N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 19 2014

FORMULA

Let n = Product_{i=1..w} p_i^e_i. Then a(n) = (1/6) * n prod_{i=1..w} (1 + 1/p_i) + (C_1)/3 + 2^(w-2+C_2),

where C_1 = 0 if 2|n or 9|n, = prod_{i=1..w, p_i > 3} ( 1+ Legendre(p_i, 3)) otherwise,

and C_2 = 2 if n == 0 mod 8, 1 if n == 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 mod 8, 0 if n == 2, 6 mod 8.

EXAMPLE

For n = 6 the 3 primitive triples are 510, 411, 321.
