COMMENTS

a(n) is the total number of holes in a pentaflake after n iterations. The number of irregular polygon-shaped holes is 5*A016200(n-3), n >= 3. The number of rhombic-shaped holes is 5*A016129(n-2), n >= 2 and equal to the first difference of a(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = 5*(A016129(n-2) + A016200(n-3)) for n >= 3, a(0)=a(1)=0, a(2)=5.

a(n) = 5*A016200(n-2) for n >= 2.

a(n) = 9*6^(n-2) - 5*2^(n-2) + 1.

a(n) = (4-5*2^n+6^n)/4. G.f.: -5*x^2 / ((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(6*x-1)). - Colin Barker, Apr 18 2014
