COMMENTS

a(n) is also the sum of all divisors of all positive integers <= n, plus the nth oblong number, since A024916(n) equals the total area of the horizontal terraces of the stepped pyramid with n levels, and A002378(n) equals the total area of the vertical sides that are visible (see link).
a(n) is also the sum of all aliquot divisors of all positive integers <= n, plus the nth triangular matchstick number.

FORMULA

a(n) = A024916(n) + A002378(n).
a(n) = A153485(n) + A045943(n).
a(n) = A328366(n)/2.  Omar E. Pol, Apr 22 2020


EXAMPLE

For n = 3 the areas of the terraces of the first three levels starting from the top of the stepped pyramid are 1, 3 and 4 respectively. On the other hand the areas of the vertical sides that are visible are [1, 1], [2, 2], [2, 1, 1, 2], or in successive levels 2, 4, 6 respectively. Hence the total area that is visible is equal to 1 + 3 + 4 + 2 + 4 + 6 = 8 + 12 = 20, so a(3) = 20.
For n = 16 the total number of horizontal and vertical cells that are visible are 220 and 272 respectively. So a(16) = 220 + 272 = 492 (see the link).
