 OFFSET 0,3 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 REFERENCES R. Reed, The Lemming Simulation Problem, Mathematics in School, 3 (#6, Nov. 1974), front cover and pp. 5-6.
