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

a(n) is also the number of grid points that are covered after n-th stage by an polyedge as the toothpick structure of A139250, but with toothpicks of length 4.

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = A147614(n)+2*A139250(n). [From R. J. Mathar, Jan 22 2010]

The above conjecture is true: each toothpick covers exactly two more grid points than the corresponding toothpick in A147614.

EXAMPLE

a(2)=13:
