Burkard Polster, What does this prove? Some of the most gorgeous visual "shrink" proofs ever invented, Mathologer video (2020).

FORMULA

a(n) >= 4*(n-2)^3 for n >= 2.

EXAMPLE

The a(3) = 4 hexagons with integer coordinates in {1,2,3} have vertices:

  (1,1,2), (1,2,3), (2,1,1), (2,3,3), (3,2,1), (3,3,2);

  (1,1,2), (1,2,1), (2,1,3), (2,3,1), (3,2,3), (3,3,2);

  (1,2,1), (1,3,2), (2,1,1), (2,3,3), (3,1,2), (3,2,3); and

  (1,2,3), (1,3,2), (2,1,3), (2,3,1), (3,1,2), (3,2,1).

One the a(5) = 116 hexagons has vertices:

  (2,2,1), (1,4,2), (2,5,4), (4,4,5), (5,2,4), (4,1,2).
