%N Coordination sequence of Dual(3.4.6.4) tiling with respect to a trivalent node.

%C Also known as the deltoidal trihexagonal tiling, or the mta net.

%C In the Ferreol link this is described as the dual to the Diana tiling. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, May 24 2020

%C This is one of the Laves tilings.

%F Theorem: For n >= 5, if n is even then a(n) = 9*n-15, otherwise a(n) = 9*n-12. The proof uses the "coloring book" method described in the Goodman-Strauss & Sloane article. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jan 24 2018
