COMMENTS
a(n) is the sum of the n-th row of the triangle in A119457 for n > 0. - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 20 2006
Convolution of odds (A005408) with Fibonacci numbers (A000045). - Graeme McRae, Jun 06 2006
Equals row sums of triangle A152203. - Gary W. Adamson, Nov 29 2008
Define a triangle by T(n,0) = n*(n+1)+1, T(n,n) = 1, and T(r,c) = T(r-1,c) + T(r-2,c-1). This triangle starts: 1; 3,1; 7,2,1; 13,5,2,1; 21,12,4,2,1; the sum of terms in row n is a(n+1). - J. M. Bergot, Apr 23 2013
a(n) = number of k-tuples (u(1), u(2), ..., u(k)) with 1 <= u(1) < u(2) < ... < u(k) <= n such that u(i) - u(i-1) <= 2 for i = 2,...,k. Changing the bound from 2 to 3, then 4, then 5, yields A356619, A356620, A356621. The patterns suggest that the limiting sequence as the bound increases is A000295. - Clark Kimberling, Aug 24 2022
