COMMENTS

See the comments in A161644.
It appears that a(n) is also the number of Vtoothpicks or Ytoothpicks added at the nth stage in a toothpick structure on hexagonal net, starting with a single Ytoothpick in stage 1 and adding only Vtoothpicks in stages >=2 (see A161206, A160120, A182633).  Omar E. Pol, Dec 07 2010

EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Apr 08 2015: (Start)
The positive terms written as an irregular triangle in which the row lengths are the terms of A011782:
1;
3;
6,6;
6,12,18,12;
6,12,24,30,24,30,42,24;
6,12,24,30,30,42,66,66,36,30,60,84,72,78,96,48;
6,12,24,30,30,42,66,66,42,42,78,114,114,114,150,138,60,30,60,84,90,114,174,198,132,90,144,210,192,192,210,96;
...
It appears that the right border gives A003945.
