COMMENTS

a(n) is the side length of the n-th triangle in a spiral around a hexagon with side length = 1.

Sequence very similar to A134816, but without repeated terms. Records in A134816. Also records in A000931, the Padovan sequence.

Column k=2 of A242464 (with offset 0). - Alois P. Heinz, May 19 2014

FORMULA

If n<5 then a(n) = n otherwise a(n) = a(n-2)+a(n-3).

G.f.: -x-1+(-x^2-2*x-1)/(-1+x^2+x^3). a(n) = A000931(n+4) + A000931(n+5) = A000931(n+7), n>1. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 29 2009

CROSSREFS

The following are basically all variants of the same sequence: A000931, A078027, A096231, A124745, A133034, A134816, A164001, A182097, A228361 and probably A020720. However, each one has its own special features and deserves its own entry.

Sequence in context: A189083 A318156 A272948 * A117598 A120149 A117597

Adjacent sequences:  A163998 A163999 A164000 * A164002 A164003 A164004
