This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation. Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Define b(1)=1 and b(n)=a(n-1) for n>1.  Then (b(n)) is the principal diagonal of the convolution array A213833. - Clark Kimberling, Jul 04 2012 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1). FORMULA a(n) = C(3*(n+1), 3) - 3*C(n+2, 3) where n>0. a(n) = (n+1)*A002414(n+1) - n*A002414(n). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 11 2012 a(n) = (8n^3 + 15n^2 + 9n + 2)/2 \\ Charles R Greathouse IV, Feb 14 2013 EXAMPLE 5 points are put on each side of a triangle (n = 5); we then have 18 vertices to construct with: 5 * 3 + 3 originals. The number of total arrangements = combi(18,3) : combi[3(n+1),3]. But these include degenerates along the 3 sides: 7 points on each side, so combi(7,3) on each side : 3 * combi[n+2, 3] combi[18,3] - 3 * combi[7,3] = 816 - 105 = 711.
