COMMENTS

a(n) is the d=1 Betti number of the complement of '3-equal' arrangements in n dimensional real space, see Björner-Welker reference, Table I, pp. 308-309, column '1' with k=3 and Th. 5.2, pp. 297-298.

Binomial transform of [1/2, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, ...] = 1/2, 7/6, 31/12, 111/20, 351/30, 1023/42, ..., where 2, 6, 12, 20, ... = A002378 (deleting the zero). - Gary W. Adamson, Apr 28 2005

Number of three-dimensional block structures associated with n joint systems in the construction of stable underground structures. - Richard M. Green, Jul 26 2011

Number of monotone mappings from the chain with three points to the complete binary tree of height n (n+1 levels). For example, the seven monotone mappings from the chain with three points (denoted 1,2,3, in order) to the complete binary tree with two levels (with a the root of the tree, and b, c the atoms) are: f(1)=f(2)=f(3)=a; f(1)=f(2)=a, f(3)=b; f(1)=f(2)=a, f(3)=c; f(1)=a, f(2)=f(3)=b; f(1)=a, f(2)=f(3)=c; f(1)=f(2)=f(3)=b; f(1)=f(2)=f(3)=c. - Pietro Codara, Mar 26 2015
