%N Number of points in the standard root system version of the D_3 (or f.c.c.) lattice having L_infinity norm n.

%C This lattice consists of all points (x,y,z) where x,y,z are integers with an even sum.

%C The L_infinity norm of a vector is the largest component in absolute value.

%C The sequence for the D_k lattice has the terms ((2*n+1)^k-(2*n-1)^k)/2, if k is even, and the terms ((2n+1)^k-(2*n-1)^k)/2+(-1)^n if k is odd (like here for k=3). The sequence for A_2 is A008458, for A_3 A010006, for A_4 the first differences of A083669. A_5 is 2+2*n^2*(25+44*n^2) if n>0, and 1 if n=0. - _R. J. Mathar_, Feb 09 2010
