A240114 Maximal number of points that can be placed on a triangular grid of side n so that no three of them are vertices of an equilateral triangle in any orientation. 4

COMMENTS

Placing points on a triangular grid of side n, there are A000332(n + 3) triangles to be avoided.

The number k(n) of maximal solutions (reflections and rotations not counted) varies greatly: k(n) = 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 3, 13, 129, 15, 2, 63, 3, 20, 1, ...
