Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The layer sequence is the sequence of the cardinalities of the layers accumulating around a ( finite-sided ) polygon of the tessellation under successive side-reflections; see the illustration accompanying A054888.

Equivalently, coordination sequence for (3,3,infinity) tiling of hyperbolic plane. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 29 2015

Equivalently, spherical growth series for modular group.

Also, number of sequences of length n with terms 1, 2, and 3, with no adjacent terms equal, and no three consecutive terms (1, 2, 3) or (3, 2, 1). - Pontus von Brömssen, Jan 03 2022

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+2*x+2*x^2+x^3)/(1-x-x^2) = (x^2+x+1)*(1+x)/(1-x-x^2).

a(n) = 2*F(n+2) for n >= 2, with F(n) the n-th Fibonacci number (cf. A000045).

E.g.f.: 2*exp(x/2)*(5*cosh(sqrt(5)*x/2) + 3*sqrt(5)*sinh(sqrt(5)*x/2))/5 - 1 - x. - Stefano Spezia, Apr 18 2022
