COMMENTS

Coordination sequence for the bew tiling with respect to a point where two hexagons meet at only a single point. The coordination sequence for the other type of point can be shown to be A008574.

Notes: There is one point on the positive x-axis at edge-distance n from the origin iff n is even; there is one point on the positive y-axis at edge-distance n from the origin iff n>1 is odd; and the number of points inside the first quadrant at distance n from 0 is n if n is odd, and n-1 if n is even.

Then a(n) = 2*(number on positive x-axis + number on positive y-axis) + 4*(number in interior of first quadrant).

FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Dec 23 2017: (Start)

G.f.: (1 + 3*x + x^2 + 5*x^3 - 2*x^4) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x)).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3) for n>4.
