COMMENTS
a(0) = 1 because the empty partition vacuously has each part >= 3. - Jason Kimberley, Jan 11 2011
Number of partitions where the largest part occurs at least three times. - Joerg Arndt, Apr 17 2011
By removing a single part of size 3, an A026796 partition of n becomes an A008483 partition of n - 3.
For n >= 3 the sequence counts the isomorphism classes of authentication codes AC(2,n,n) with perfect secrecy and with largest probability 0.5 that an interceptor could deceive with a substituted message. - E. Keith Lloyd (ekl(AT)soton.ac.uk).
For n >= 1, also the number of regular graphs of degree 2. - Mitch Harris, Jun 22 2005
(1 + 0*x + 0*x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + x^5 + 2*x^6 + ...) = (1 + x + 2*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 5*x^4 + ...) * 1 / (1 + x + 2*x^2 + 2*x^3 + 3*x^4 + 3*x^5 + 4*x^6 + 4*x^7 + ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Jun 30 2009
Because the triangle A051031 is symmetric, a(n) is also the number of (n-3)-regular graphs on n vertices. Since the disconnected (n-3)-regular graph with minimum order is 2K_{n-2}, then for n > 4 there are no disconnected (n-3)-regular graphs on n vertices. Therefore for n > 4, a(n) is also the number of connected (n-3)-regular graphs on n vertices. - Jason Kimberley, Oct 05 2009
Number of partitions of n+2 such that 2*(number of parts) is a part. - Clark Kimberling, Feb 27 2014
For n >= 1, a(n) is the number of (1,1)-separable partitions of n, as defined at A239482. For example, the (1,1)-separable partitions of 11 are [10,1], [7,1,2,1], [6,1,3,1], [5,1,4,1], 4,1,2,1,2,1], [3,1,3,1,2,1], so that a(11) = 6. - Clark Kimberling, Mar 21 2014

FORMULA
a(n) = p(n) - p(n - 1) - p(n - 2) + p(n - 3) where p(n) is the number of unrestricted partitions of n into positive parts (A000041).
G.f.: Product_{m>=3} 1/(1-x^m).
G.f.: (Sum_{n>=0} x^(3*n)) / (Product_{k=1..n} (1 - x^k)). - Joerg Arndt, Apr 17 2011
a(n) = A121081(n+3) - A121659(n+3). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 14 2006
Euler transformation of A179184. a(n) = A179184(n) + A165652(n). - Jason Kimberley, Jan 05 2011
a(n) ~ Pi^2 * exp(Pi*sqrt(2*n/3)) / (12*sqrt(3)*n^2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 26 2015
G.f.: exp(Sum_{k>=1} x^(3*k)/(k*(1 - x^k))). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Aug 21 2018
a(n) = Sum_{j=0..floor(n/2)} A008284(n-2*j,j). - Gregory L. Simay, Apr 27 2023
