FORMULA

G.f.: (x^2-(Sqrt[1-4*x]+2)*x+1)/(Sqrt[1-4*x]*(x-1)^2). - Harvey P. Dale, Apr 18 2014

EXAMPLE

a(3)=17 since can map (1,2,3) to (1,1,1), (1,1,2), (1,1,3), (1,2,2), (1,2,3), (1,3,3), (2,1,1), (2,2,1), (2,2,2), (2,2,3), (2,3,3), (3,1,1), (3,2,1), (3,2,2), (3,3,1), (3,3,2), or (3,3,3) but not for example to (1,3,2)
