%N Number of complete sphere stacks on a triangular base with side length n.

%C Start with a layer of spheres closely packed in an equilateral triangle of side n >= 1. Add spheres by resting them in any of the hollows between three touching spheres in the layer below. Continue until no more sites are available.

%C a(n) is the number of distinct complete stacks that can be built.

%e For n=3 there are two complete stacks, so a(3)=2.
