A212900 Number of (w,x,y,z) with all terms in {0,...,n} and distinct consecutive gap sizes. 3
0, 4, 28, 122, 340, 786, 1558, 2814, 4690, 7404, 11130, 16140, 22652, 30992, 41416, 54310, 69968, 88830, 111234, 137674, 168526, 204344, 245542, 292728, 346360, 407100, 475444, 552114, 637644, 732810, 838190, 954614, 1082698 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS
The gap sizes are |w-x|, |x-y|, |y-z|. Every term is even.

FORMULA
a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-3*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5)+3*a(n-6)-a(n-7)-2*a(n-8)+a(n-9).
G.f.: f(x)/g(x), where f(x) = 2(2*x + 10*x^2 + 31*x^3 + 40*x^4 + 36*x^5 + 18*x^6 + 7*x^7) and g(x)=((1-x)^5)((1+x)^2)(1+x+x^2).
EXAMPLE
a(1)=4 counts these (w,x,y,z): (0,0,1,1), (0,1,1,0), (1,1,0,0), (1,0,0,1).
MATHEMATICA
t = Compile[{{n, _Integer}}, Module[{s = 0},
(Do[If[Abs[w - x] != Abs[x - y] && Abs[x - y] != Abs[y - z], s = s + 1],
{w, 0, n}, {x, 0, n}, {y, 0, n}, {z, 0, n}]; s)]];
m = Map[t[#] &, Range[0, 40]] (* A212900 *)
