Same as Pisot sequences E(1, 6), L(1, 6), P(1, 6), T(1, 6). Essentially same as Pisot sequences E(6, 36), L(6, 36), P(6, 36), T(6, 36). See A008776 for definitions of Pisot sequences.
Central terms of the triangle in A036561. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 14 2006
a(n) = A169604(n)/3; a(n+1) = 2*A169604(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 02 2010
Number of pentagons contained within pentaflakes. - William A. Tedeschi, Sep 12 2010
Sum of coefficients of expansion of (1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + x^5)^n.
a(n) is number of compositions of natural numbers into n parts less than 6. For example, a(2) = 36, and there are 36 compositions of natural numbers into 2 parts less than 6.
The compositions of n in which each part is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n >= 1, a(n) equals the number of 5-colored compositions of n such that no adjacent parts have the same color.
Number of words of length n over the alphabet of six letters. - Joerg Arndt, Sep 16 2014
The number of ordered triples (x, y, z) of binary words of length n such that D(x,z) = D(x, y) + D(y, z) where D(a, b) is the Hamming distance from a to b. - Geoffrey Critzer, Mar 06 2017
a(n) is the area of a triangle with vertices at (2^n, 3^n), (2^(n+1), 3^(n+1)), and (2^(n+2), 3^(n+2)); a(n) is also one fifth the area of a triangle with vertices at (2^n, 3^(n+2)), (2^(n+1), 3^(n+1)), and (2^(n+2), 3^n). - J. M. Bergot, May 07 2018
