COMMENTS

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

FORMULA

Partial sums of A004016.

Expansion of a(x) / (1 - x) in powers of x where a() is a cubic AGM theta function (cf. A004016). - Michael Somos, Aug 21 2012

Equals 1 + A014201(n). - Neven Juric, May 10 2010

a(n)=1+6*sum(k=1,n/3,floor(n/(3k+1))-floor(n/(3k+2))). a(n) is asymptotic to 2*Pi/sqrt(3)*n. Conjecture: a(n)=2*Pi/sqrt(3)*n+O(n^(1/4+epsilon)) like for the Gauss circle or Dirichlet divisor problems - Benoit Cloitre, Oct 27 2012

EXAMPLE

1 + 7*x + 7*x^2 + 13*x^3 + 19*x^4 + 19*x^5 + 19*x^6 + 31*x^7 + 31*x^8 + 37*x^9 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := 1 + Sum[ Length[ {ToRules[ Reduce[ x^2 + x*y + y^2 == k, {x, y}, Integers] ]}], {k, 1, n}]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 54}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Feb 23 2012, after Neven Juric *)

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=1+6*sum(k=0, n\3, (n\(3*k+1))-(n\(3*k+2)))
