COMMENTS

Graded dimension of L''/[L',L''] for the free Lie algebra on 2 generators. Let L be a free Lie algebra with 2 generators graded by the total degree. Set L'=[L,L] and L''=[L',L']. Then a(n) is equal to the dimension of the homogeneous subspace of degree n+2 in the quotient L''/[L',L'']. - Sergei Duzhin, Mar 15 2004

a(n+3) = A003451(n) + A027656(n). - Yosu Yurramendi, Aug 07 2008

Also the 2nd Witt transform of A000027. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 08 2008

Also the number of 3-element subsets of {1..n+1} whose elements sum up to an odd integer, i.e., the third column of A159916: e.g. a(3)=2 corresponds to the two subsets {1,2,4} and {2,3,4} of {1..4}. - M. F. Hasler, May 01 2009

The set of magic numbers for an idealized harmonic oscillator nucleus with a biaxially deformed prolate ellipsoid shape and an oscillator ratio of 2:1. - Jess Tauber, May 13 2013

Quasipolynomial of order 2. - Charles R Greathouse IV, May 14 2013
