COMMENTS

Polyominoes with n cells and at least one line of reflection symmetry.  Joshua Zucker, Mar 08 2008
This sequence can most readily be calculated by enumerating fixed polyominoes for three different axes of symmetry: 1) a line composed of the diagonals of cells, A346800, 2) a line composed of edges of cells, and 3) a line composed of lines connecting the centers of adjacent cells, A346799. For the second case, any fixed polyomino just touching the edge line is reflected on the other side, so that sequence is A001168(n/2) for even values of n and zero otherwise. These three sequences together include each achiral polyomino exactly twice.  Robert A. Russell, Aug 04 2021

FORMULA

a(n) = A000105(n)  A030228(n) = 2*A000105(n)  A000988(n).  Andrew Howroyd, Dec 04 2018
a(n) = A006746(n) + A006748(n) + A056877(n) + A056878(n) + A142886(n) = A000988(n)  2*A030228(n).  Robert A. Russell, Feb 02 2019
For odd n, a(n) = (A346799(n) + A346800(n)) / 2; for even n, a(n) = (A346799(n) + A001168(n/2) + A346800(n)) / 2.  Robert A. Russell, Aug 04 2021


EXAMPLE

For a(4)=3, the achiral tetrominoes are a 2 X 2 square, a 1 X 4 rectangle, and a cell plus three cells adjacent to it (forming a shortened T).
