COMMENTS

a(n) is also the volume of a special stepped pyramid with n levels related to the symmetric representation of sigma. Note that starting at the top of the pyramid, the total area of the horizontal regions at the n-th level is equal to A239050(n), and the total area of the vertical regions at the n-th level is equal to 8*n.

From Omar E. Pol, Sep 19 2015: (Start)

Also, consider that the area of the central square in the top of the pyramid is equal to 1, so the total area of the horizontal regions at the n-th level starting from the top is equal to sigma(n) = A000203(n), and the total area of the vertical regions at the n-th level is equal to 2*n.

Also note that this stepped pyramid can be constructed with four copies of the stepped pyramid described in A245092 back-to-back (one copy in every quadrant). (End)

Note that the above diagram contains a hidden pattern, simpler, which emerges from the front view of every corner of the stepped pyramid.
