COMMENTS

Number of equal balls that will fill a triangular cupola, formed by splitting a cuboctahedron along one of its four "equilateral" hexagons.

Also as a(n)=(1/6)*(10*n^3-6*n^2+10*n), n>0: structured pentagonal anti-prism numbers (Cf. A100185 = structured anti-prisms); and structured tetragonal anti-diamond numbers (vertex structure 7) (Cf. A000447 = alternate vertex; A100188 = structured anti-diamonds). Cf. A100145 for more on structured numbers. - James A. Record (james.record(AT)gmail.com), Nov 07 2004
