This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS A number parallelogram contains numbers from 1 to the triangular area of the parallelogram without duplicate numbers. This sequence applies the water retention model for mathematical surfaces to the triangular grid. Magic polyiamond tiling is the tiling of a number shape with a single order of polyiamond. The sum of numbers in each polyiamond subspace is equal. The height-three length-four parallelogram has an area of 24 unit triangles. The sum of the numbers from 1 to 24 is 300. Both 24 and 300 are divisible by four and six making magic polyiamond tilings possible with order four and six polyiamonds. Five magic polyiamond tilings for a single numeric solution are noted in the link section. LINKS Colin Barker, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Craig Knecht, Example for the sequence.

FORMULA a(n) = ((4*n+7)*(4*n+2)) - (4*n+2) * (4*n+3)/2 + 4 for n > 2. From Colin Barker, Jun 15 2018: (Start) G.f.: x*(20 - 11*x + 12*x^2 - 5*x^3) / (1 - x)^3. a(n) = -3 + 10*n + 8*n^2 for n>1. a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n > 4.
