COMMENTS

Number of potential flows in a 2 X 2 matrix with integer velocities in -n..n, i.e., number of 2 X 2 matrices with adjacent elements differing by no more than n, counting matrices differing by a constant only once. - R. H. Hardin, Feb 27 2002

Number of ordered quadruples (a,b,c,d), -(n-1)<= a,b,c,d<=n-1, such that a+b+c+d=0. - Benoit Cloitre, Jun 14 2003

If Y and Z are 2-blocks of a (2n+1)-set X then a(n-1) is the number of 5-subsets of X intersecting both Y and Z. - Milan Janjic, Oct 28 2007

FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Jul 18 2008: (Start)

Partial sums of A010006. So this sequence is the crystal ball sequence for the C_3 lattice - row 3 of A142992. The lattice C_3 consists of all integer lattice points v = (a,b,c) in Z^3 such that a + b + c is even, equipped with the taxicab type norm ||v|| = 1/2 * (|a| + |b| + |c|).

The crystal ball sequence of C_3 gives the number of lattice points v in C_3 with ||v|| <= n for n = 0,1,2,3,... [Bacher et al.].

For example, a(1) = 19 because the origin has norm 0 and the 18 lattice points in Z^3 of norm 1 (as defined above) are +-(2,0,0), +-(0,2,0), +-(0,0,2), +-(1,1,0), +-(1,0,1), +-(0,1,1), +-(1,-1,0), +-(1,0,-1) and +-(0,1,-1). These 18 vectors form a root system of type C_3.

O.g.f.: x*(1+15*x+15*x^2+x^3)/(1-x)^4 = x/(1-x) * T(3,(1+x)/(1-x)), where T(n,x) denotes the Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind.

2*log(2) = 4/3 + sum {n = 1..inf} 1/(n*a(n)*a(n+1)). (End)

a(n+1) = integral( (sin((n+1/2)x)/sin(x/2))^4, x=0..Pi)/Pi. - Yalcin Aktar, Nov 02 2011, corrected by R. J. Mathar, Dec 01 2011
