COMMENTS

a(n) is also the number of vertices of a truncated octahedron (the Voronoi cell for the lattice A_3*) at edge distance n from a given vertex. See also row 4 of the triangle in A008302. - N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 12 2015, corrected Aug 26 2016.

Computed with MAGMA using commands similar to those used to compute A161409.

FORMULA

G.f. for A_m is the polynomial Product_{k=1..m} (1-x^(k+1))/(1-x). Only finitely many terms are nonzero. This is a row of the triangle in A008302.
