COMMENTS

See the comments in A161644.

It appears that a(n) is also the number of V-toothpicks or Y-toothpicks added at the n-th stage in a toothpick structure on hexagonal net, starting with a single Y-toothpick in stage 1 and adding only V-toothpicks in stages >=2 (see A161206, A160120, A182633). - Omar E. Pol, Dec 07 2010

Needs a b-file.

EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Apr 08 2015: (Start)

Written the positive terms as an irregular triangle in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782:

1;

3;

6,6;

6,12,18,12;

6,12,24,30,24,30,42,24;

6,12,24,30,30,42,66,66,36,30,60,84,72,78,96,48;

6,12,24,30,30,42,66,66,42,42,78,114,114,114,150,138,60,30,60,84,90,114,174,198,132,90,144,210,192,192,210,96;

...

It appears that the right border gives A003945.
