COMMENTS

This sequence is to the lattice A2 as sequence A038548 is to the lattice D2; presumably other lattices have analogous sequences.
a(n) is also the number of 4tuples (p,b,c,d) of nonnegative integers satisfying b <= c <= d, b + c + d < p, and n = t(p)  t(b)  t(c)  t(d) where t(x) is the xth triangular number (A000217).

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 3 because (reading the rows of the hexagons) 7 = 3+4 = 2+3+2.
