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]
