COMMENTS

The A_3 lattice consists of all vectors v = (a,b,c,d) in Z^4 such that a+b+c+d = 0. The lattice is equipped with the norm ||v|| = 1/2*(|a| + |b| + |c| + |d|). Pairs of lattice points (v,w) in the product lattice A_3 x A_3 have norm ||(v,w)|| = ||v|| + ||w||. Then the k-th term in the crystal ball sequence for the A_3 x A_3 lattice gives the number of such pairs (v,w) for which ||(v,w)|| is less than or equal to k.

FORMULA

Row 3 of A143007. a(n) := (10*n^6+30*n^5+85*n^4+120*n^3+121*n^2+66*n+18)/18. O.g.f. : 1/(1-x)*[Legendre_P(3,(1+x)/(1-x))]^2. Apery's constant zeta(3) = (1+1/2^3+1/3^3) + sum {n = 1..inf} 1/(n^3*a(n-1)*a(n)).

G.f.: (1+x)^2*(1+8*x+x^2)^2/(1-x)^7. [Colin Barker, Mar 16 2012]

MAPLE
