A111138 Let b(n) denote the number of nontriangular numbers less than or equal to n. Then a(n) = b(n-1) + a(b(n-1)), with a(1) = a(2) = 0, a(3) = 1. 3

COMMENTS

For a subgroup H of order p^n (p an odd prime) of the subgroup generated by all commutators [x_j,x_i] in the relatively free group F of class three and exponent p, freely generated by x_1, x_2,..., x_k, (k sufficiently large) the minimum size of the subgroup of [H,F] of F_3 is p^{kn - a(n)}.

The sequence arises when finding a purely numerical sufficient condition for the capability of p-groups of class two and exponent p, where p is an odd prime.

FORMULA

If we write n = (m choose 2) + s, 0<= s <= m, then a(n)=(m choose 3) + (s choose 2).

Set R:=Round(Sqrt(2*N)) & T:=N-Comb(R,2) then

a(N)=Comb(T,2)+Comb(R,3). - Gerald Hillier, Nov 18 2017

EXAMPLE

a(31) = b(30) + a(b(30)) = 23 + a(23) = 23 + b(22) + a(b(22)) = 23 + 16 + a(16 = 39 + b(15) + a(b(15)) = 39 + 10 + a(10) = 49 + b(9) + a(b(9)) = 49 + 6 + a(6) = 55 + b(5) + a(b(5)) = 55 + 3 + a(3) = 58 + 1 = 59.

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = a[2] = 0; a[3] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = b[n - 1] + a[b[n - 1]]; b[n_] := n - Floor[(Sqrt[8n + 1] - 1)/2]; Array[a, 64] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 01 2006 *)
