COMMENTS

Essentially the first differences of A160172.
For further information see the ApplegatePolSloane paper, chapter 11: Tshaped toothpicks. See also the figure 16 in the mentioned paper.  Omar E. Pol, Nov 18 2011
The numbers n in increasing order such that the triple [n, n, n] can be found here, give A199111. [Observed by Omar E. Pol, Nov 18 2011. Confirmed by Alois P. Heinz, Nov 21 2011]
