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 side lengths are consecutive integers (A016064) and the area is an integer (A011945).

Except for the first term, positive values of x (or y) satisfying x^2 - 4*x*y + y^2 + 27 = 0. - Colin Barker, Feb 08 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = 3 * A001075(n-1). - Joerg Arndt, Oct 10 2022

a(n) = 3*(A016064(n-1) + 1)/2 = 3*A003500(n-1)/2. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 27 2009

From Colin Barker, Mar 30 2012: (Start)

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - a(n-2).

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

a(n) = 3*( (2+sqrt(3))*(2-sqrt(3))^n + (2-sqrt(3))*(2+sqrt(3))^n )/2. - Colin Barker, Oct 12 2015
