COMMENTS

Maximum number of regions determined by n bent lines (angular sectors). See GKP Reference.

a(n) = A128918(2*n) = A130883(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Oct 27 2013

a(n)*Pi is the total length of half circle spiral after n rotations. It is formed as irregular spiral with two center points. At the 2nd stage, there are two alternatives: (1) select 2nd half circle radius, r2  = 2, the sequence will be A014105 or (2) select r2 = 0, the sequence will be A130883. See illustration in links. - Kival Ngaokrajang, Jan 19 2014
