COMMENTS

This is the strongly triple-free analog of A057561 and the description is modeled after A094708.

a(n) is the size of the maximal independent set in a grid graph with vertex set D(n) and edges connecting every x to 2x and every x to 3x.

EXAMPLE

For n=7, the grid graph has rows {1,3,9}, {2,6}, {4}, {8} and the maximal set of nonadjacent vertices is {1,4,6,9}, hence a(7)=4.
