COMMENTS

Number of distinct solutions to minimal dominating set on queens' graph Q(n). See A002563 for non-isomorphic solutions.

For same problem, but with non-attacking queens, see A002568. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 07 2012

Number of minimum dominating sets in the n X n queen graph. - Eric W. Weisstein, Dec 31 2017
