OFFSET

0,2

COMMENTS

First column just gives the tribonacci numbers.

n offset is zero, but d offset is one so 1st entry is a(0,1).

FORMULA

T(n,d) = Product_{i=0..d-1} Tr(floor(n + i)/d) + 2) where Tr(n) is the n-th tribonacci number.

............................................................

For a(5,2) we count subsets of {1,...,5} that do not contain {1,3,5}, the only d=2 AP possible here.  There are 4 subsets containing {1,3,5} so a(5,2) = 2^5-4 = 28.

MATHEMATICA

Trib[0] = 0; Trib[1] = 1; Trib[2] = 1; Trib[n_] := Trib[n - 1] + Trib[n - 2] + Trib[n - 3]; T[n_, d_] := Product[Trib[Floor[(n + i)/d] + 2], {i, 0, d - 1}]; Flatten[Table[T[j - i, i + 1], {j, 0, 15}, {i, 0, j}]]
