COMMENTS

Three-dimensional cage assemblies. (See Chapter 61, "Hyperspace Prisons", of C. A. Pickover's book "Wonders of Numbers" for full explanation of "cage numbers.")

For n>=0 the number of 3 X 3 matrices with nonnegative integer entries such that every row sum equals n is a(n+1). - Sharon Sela (sharonsela(AT)hotmail.com), May 14 2002

a(n) also gives the value for the number of possible cuboids (including cubes) that will fit inside an n*n*n cube. - Alexander Craggs, Mar 08 2017
