%N Molien series for 3-dimensional representation of dihedral group D_6 of order 6.

%C a(n-3) is the number of ordered triples of positive integers which are the side lengths of a nondegenerate triangle of perimeter n. - _Rob Pratt_, Jul 12 2004

%C a(n) is the number of ways to distribute n identical objects into 3 distinguishable bins so that no bin contains an absolute majority of objects. - _Geoffrey Critzer_, Mar 17 2010

%C From _Omar E. Pol_, Feb 05 2012 (Start:)

%C Also terms of A000217 and A000217-shifted interleaved.

%C Also 0 together with this sequence give the first row of the square array A194801. (End)

%C a(n) is the number of coins left after packing 3-curves coins patterns into fountain of coins base n. Refer to A005169: "A fountain is formed by starting with a row of coins, then stacking additional coins on top so that each new coin touches two in the previous row". See illustration in links. - _Kival Ngaokrajang_, Oct 12 2013
