COMMENTS

This sequence gives the number of triangles of all sizes in (5*n^2)-polyiamonds in a tetragonal or hexagonal or heptagonal configuration.

It is the sum of (1/2)*Sum{j=0..n-1}(n-j)*(5*n+1-j) triangles oriented in one direction and (1/2)*Sum{j-0..n-1}(n-j)*(5*n-1-3*j) oriented in the opposite direction.

Shäfli's notation: 3.3.3.3.3 for a(1).

The difference between this sequence and A050409(n) equals A000292(n-1).

Also, (1/3)*(A002717(2*n) + A255211(n) - 2*A000330(n) gives A033994(n): a (5*n^2)-polyiamond in pentagonal configuration that does not belong to this sequence because a(1)=6.

a(n) is odd only when n mod 4 = 1.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{j=0..n-1}(n-j)*(5*n-2*j).

G.f.: x*(5+8*x)/(1-x)^4. - Vincenzo Librandi, Apr 16 2015

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4). - Vincenzo Librandi, Apr 16 2015

EXAMPLE

Second comment a(0) = 0; a(1) = 3 + 2;  a(2) = 16 + 12;  a(3) = 46 + 36; a(4) = 100 + 80; a(5) = 185 + 150; a(6) = 308 + 252.
