Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

For n>=1, a(n) is the first Zagreb index of the triangular grid graph T[n] (see the West reference, p. 390). The first Zagreb index of a simple connected graph is the sum of the squared degrees of its vertices. Alternately, it is the sum of the degree sums d(i)+d(j) over all edges ij of the graph. - Emeric Deutsch, Nov 10 2016

The M-polynomial of the triangular grid graph T[n] is M(T[n], x, y) = 6*x^2*y^4 + 3*(n-1)*x^4*y^4 +6*(n-2)*x^4*y^6+3*(n-2)*(n-3)*x^6*y^6/2. - Emeric Deutsch, May 09 2018

This is the number of overlapping six sphinx tiled shapes in the sphinx tessellated hexagon described in A291582. - Craig Knecht, Sep 13 2017

a(n) is the number of words of length 3n over the alphabet {a,b,c}, where the number of b's plus the number of c's is 2. - Juan Camacho, Mar 03 2021

Sequence found by reading the line from 0, in the direction 0, 12, ..., in the square spiral whose vertices are the generalized 11-gonal numbers A195160. - Omar E. Pol, Mar 12 2021
