Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The corresponding minimum value of f(P) is given by A000292(n)=binomial(n+3,3).

The number of distinct values of f(P) is given by A087034.

Also, number of (w,x,y) with all terms in {0,...,n-1} and 2|w-x| <= max(w,x,y)-min(w,x,y). For a guide to related sequences, see A212959. - Clark Kimberling, Jun 10 2012

FORMULA

From Clark Kimberling, Jun 10 2012: (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1)-2*a(n-2)-2*a(n-3)+3*a(n-4)-a(n-5).

G.f.: (x + x^2 + 3*x^3 - x^4)/(((1 - x)^4)*(1 + x)).

a(n+1) + A213045(n) = (n+1)^3. (End)

a(n) = (2*(n-1)*(n+1)*(2*n+3)-3*(-1)^n+9)/12. - Bruno Berselli, Jun 11 2012

EXAMPLE

a(3)=13, since f takes on the values 10 and 13: f({1,2,3})=10, f({1,3,2)}=13, f({2,1,3})=13, f({2,3,1})=13, f({3,1,2})=13 and f({3,2,1})=10.

MATHEMATICA

t = Compile[{{n, _Integer}}, Module[{s = 0},

(Do[If[Max[w, x, y] - Min[w, x, y] >= 2 Abs[w - x],

s = s + 1],

{w, 0, n}, {x, 0, n}, {y, 0, n}]; s)]];

m = Map[t[#] &, Range[0, 45]]
