COMMENTS

Essentially the first differences of A173456.
It appears that row lengths give A098011. After the initial zero, it appears that row lengths give the absolute values of A110164.  Omar E. Pol, Apr 22 2013

FORMULA

a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=8, a(3)=12, for n>=4 when (n MOD 3)=0,1,2 let m=36,4,28 then a(n)=m*A147610((n + 2) / 3). (Found empirically) [Lars Blomberg, Apr 22 2013]

When written as an irregular triangle begins:
0;
1;
8,12;
4,28,36;
