COMMENTS

The sequence gives the number of real nodes of a family of algebraic surfaces with degrees 3n. They have been introduced by means of a kind of duality in the basic geometric constructions corresponding to the generation of substitution tilings.

FORMULA

a(n) = (1/12)*(135*n^3-126*n^2 + 45*n-6) if n is odd; a(n) = (1/12)*(135*n^3- 117*n^2 + 54*n - 12) if n is even.

From Colin Barker, Nov 04 2017: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 + 55*x + 149*x^2 + 196*x^3 + 110*x^4 + 25*x^5 + x^6) / ((1 - x)^4*(1 + x)^3).

a(n) = a(n-1) + 3*a(n-2) - 3*a(n-3) - 3*a(n-4) + 3*a(n-5) + a(n-6) - a(n-7) for n>7.

(End)

(PARI) a(n) = if (n % 2, (1/12)*(135*n^3-126*n^2 + 45*n-6), (1/12)*(135*n^3- 117*n^2 + 54*n - 12)); \\ Michel Marcus, Aug 17 2013

(PARI) Vec(x*(4 + 55*x + 149*x^2 + 196*x^3 + 110*x^4 + 25*x^5 + x^6) / ((1 - x)^4*(1 + x)^3) + O(x^40)) \\ Colin Barker, Nov 04 2017
