COMMENTS

a(n) is the perimeter of a hexaflake (rounded down) after n iterations. The total number of holes = A000420(n) - 1. The total number of irregular polygon holes = A000420(n-1) - 1. The total number of triangle holes = 6*A000420(n-1). - Kival Ngaokrajang, Apr 18 2014

a(n) is composite infinitely often (Forman and Shapiro). More exactly, a(n) is divisible by at least one of 2, 3, 5 infinitely often (Dubickas and Novikas). - Tomohiro Yamada, Apr 15 2017
