%N Number of partitions of n into parts 2 and 3.

%C Essentially the same as A008615.

%C Poincaré series [or Poincare series] for modular forms of weight w for the full modular group. As generators one may take the Eisenstein series E_4 (A004009) and E_6 (A013973).

%C Dimension of the space of weight 2n+12 cusp forms for Gamma_0( 1 ).

%C Dimension of the space of weight 2n cuspidal newforms for Gamma_0( 5 ).

%C a(n) is the number of partitions of n into two nonnegative parts congruent modulo 3. - _Andrew Baxter_, Jun 28 2006

%C Also number of equivalence classes of period 2n billiards on an equilateral triangle. - _Andrew Baxter_, Jun 06 2008

%C a(n) is also the number of 2-regular multigraphs on n vertices, where each component is either a pair of parallel edges, or a triangle. - _Jason Kimberley_, Oct 14 2011

%C For n>1, a(n) is the number of partitions of 2n into positive parts x,y, and z such that x>=y and y=z. This sequence is used in calculating the probability of the need for a run-off election when n voters randomly cast ballots for two of three candidates running for two empty slots on a county commission. - _Dennis P. Walsh_, Apr 25 2013

%C Also, Molien series for invariants of finite Coxeter group A_2. The Molien series for the finite Coxeter group of type A_k (k >= 1) has g.f. = 1/Product_{i=2..k+1} (1-x^i). Note that this is the root system A_k, not the alternating group Alt_k. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jan 11 2016

%C The coefficient of x^(2*n+1) in the power series expansion of the Weierstrass sigma function is a polynomial in the invariants g2 and g3 with a(n) terms. - _Michael Somos_, Jun 14 2016

%C a(n) is also the dimension of the complex vector space of modular forms M_{2*n} of weight 2*n and level 1 (full modular group). See Apostol p. 119, eq. (9) for k=2*n, and Ash and Gross, p. 178, Table 13.1. For a(6*k+1) = a(6*k+j)-1 for j = 0,2,3,4,5 and k >= 0 see A016921 (so-called dips, cf. Ash and Gross, p. 178.). - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Sep 16 2016

%C In an hexagonal tiling of the plane where the base tile is (0,0)--(2,1)--(3,3)--(1,4)--(-1,3)--(-2,1)--(0,0), a(n) is the number of vertices on the (n,0)--(n,n) closed line segment. - _Luc Rousseau_, Mar 22 2018
