COMMENTS

Inspired by A061777, let us assign the label "1" to an origin hexagon; at n-th generation add a hexagon at each expandable vertex, i.e. a vertex such that the new added generations will not overlap to the existing ones, but overlapping among new generations are allowed. The non-overlapping squares will have the same label value as a predecessor; for the overlapping ones, the label value will be sum of label values of predecessors. The hexagons count is A003215. See llustration. For n >= 1, (a(n) - a(n-1))/6 is A000225

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, for n >= 1, a(n) = 6*A000225(n) + a(n-1).

From Colin Barker, Sep 21 2014: (Start)

a(n) = (-11+3*2^(2+n)-6*n).

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-5*a(n-2)+2*a(n-3).

G.f.: -(x+1)*(2*x+1) / ((x-1)^2*(2*x-1)).

(End)

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = if (n<1, 1, 6*(2^n-1)+a(n-1))

for (n=0, 50, print1(a(n), ", "))

(PARI) Vec(-(x+1)*(2*x+1)/((x-1)^2*(2*x-1)) + O(x^100)) \\ Colin Barker, Sep 21 2014
