FORMULA

G.f.: G = (z^6 + z^5 + z^4 - 2z^3 - 5z^2 +5z - 1 - (z^3 + 2z^2 + 2z - 1)Z)/(2 Z z^2), where Z = (1 - z)sqrt((1 - z)(1 - 3z - z^2 - z^3)).

a(n) = Sum(k*A273342(n,k), k>=1).

Conjecture: (n+2)*a(n) +(-5*n-3)*a(n-1) +(5*n-2)*a(n-2) +(2*n-9)*a(n-3) +(-n+3)*a(n-4) +(-n+4)*a(n-5) +(-n+7)*a(n-6)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Jun 02 2016

EXAMPLE

a(4)=9  because the 5 (=A082582(4)) bargraphs of semiperimeter 4 correspond to the compositions [1,1,1], [1,2], [2,1], [2,2], [3] and, clearly, the sum of their first-columns lengths is 1+1+2+2+3=9.

MAPLE

Z := (1-z)*sqrt((1-z)*(1-3*z-z^2-z^3)): g := ((z^6+z^5+z^4-2*z^3-5*z^2+5*z-1-(z^3+2*z^2+2*z-1)*Z)*(1/2))/(z^2*Z): gser := series(g, z=0, 44): seq(coeff(gser, z, n), n=2..40);
