FORMULA

If b(n) denotes the number of perfect matchings (or domino tilings) in O_5 X P_n we have:

b(1) = 0,

b(2) = 40,

b(3) = 0,

b(4) = 2197,

b(5) = 0,

b(6) = 121735,

b(7) = 0,

b(8) = 6748096,

b(9) = 0,

b(10) = 374079619,

b(11) = 0,

b(12) = 20737143595, and

b(n) = 65b(n-2) - 548b(n-4) + 995b(n-6) - 548b(n-8) + 65b(n-10) - b(n-12).
