COMMENTS
A cevian is a line segment which joins a vertex of a triangle with a point on the opposite side (or its extension).
A nontrivial cevian is one that does not coincide with a side of the triangle.
For an equilateral triangle of side n, the lengths of its cevians are the values of y in the solutions to x^2-y^2-n*x+n^2=0.

FORMULA
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jun 06 2016: (Start)
a(n) = 3*a(n-4)-3*a(n-8)+a(n-12) for n>14.
G.f.: x^3*(7 +19*x^2 +14*x^3 +16*x^4 +13*x^5 +4*x^6 -4*x^7 +x^8 -11*x^9 +x^10 +2*x^11 +4*x^13) / ((1 -x)^3*(1 +x)^3*(1 +x^2)^3).
