%C Apart from initial term(s), dimension of the space of weight 2n cusp forms for Gamma_0( 47 ).

%C Also numbers of the form x^2 + y^2 + z^2, where x,y,z are odd integers. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Dec 01 2006

%C 2*a(n) is the half-period of oscillation of a Langton's ant colony that is n basic blocks in length. To construct such blocks use a pair of ants facing north at (x,y) and (x+1,y+2) (using Golly's coordinate system). Each successive block is placed 1 cell away from the previous one, i.e., the x coordinate shifts by 3, so we have (x+3k,y) and (x+3k+1,y+2). Also, because of the symmetry of the oscillation pattern, 4*a(n) is the length of the whole period. - _Mikhail Kurkov_, Nov 20 2019
