From Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 03 2019: (Start)

In the notation of Nemirovsky et al. (1992), a(n), the n-th term of the current sequence is C_{n,m} with m=2 (and d=2). Here, for a d-dimensional hypercubic lattice, C_{n,m} is "the number of configurations of an n-bond self-avoiding chain with m neighbor contacts."

These numbers appear in Table I (p. 1088) in the paper by Nemirovsky et al. (1992).


The terms a(12) to a(19) were copied from Table B1 (pp. 4738-4739) in Bennett-Wood et al. (1998). In the table, the authors actually calculate a(n)/4 = C(n, m=2)/4 for 1 <= n <= 29. (They use the notation c_n(k), where k stands for m, which equals 2 here. They call c_n(k) "the number of SAWs of length n with k nearest-neighbour contacts".) - Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 04 2019
