COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) > 0 for all n. Also, any nonnegative integer can be written as x*(3*x-1)/2 + y*(3*y-1) + z*(3*z+1)/2 with x,y nonnegative integers and z an integer, and each n = 0,1,2,... can be expressed as x*(3*x+1)/2 + 3*y*(3*y+1)/2 + z*(3*z+1)/2 with x,y nonnegative integers and z an integer.

EXAMPLE

a(8) = 1 since 8 = 1*(3*1-1)/2 + 2*(3*2+1)/2 + 0*(3*0+1).

a(23) = 1 since 23 = 3*(3*3-1)/2 + 2*(3*2+1)/2 + 1*(3*1+1).
