COMMENTS

The layer sequence is the sequence of the cardinalities of the layers accumulating around a ( finite-sided ) polygon of the tessellation under successive side-reflections; see the illustration accompanying A054888.

Equivalently, coordination sequence for (3,3,infinity) tiling of hyperbolic plane. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 29 2015

Equivalently, spherical growth series for modular group.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+2*x+2*x^2+x^3)/(1-x-x^2) = (x^2+x+1)*(1+x)/(1-x-x^2). a(n)=2*F(n) for n>2, with F(n) the n-th Fibonacci number (cf. A000045 )
