COMMENTS

From Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 03 2019: (Start)
In the notation of Nemirovsky et al. (1992), a(n), the nth term of the current sequence is C_{n,m} with m=2 (and d=2). Here, for a ddimensional hypercubic lattice, C_{n,m} is "the number of configurations of an nbond selfavoiding chain with m neighbor contacts."
These numbers appear in Table I (p. 1088) in the paper by Nemirovsky et al. (1992).
(End)
The terms a(12) to a(19) were copied from Table B1 (pp. 47384739) in BennettWood 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 nearestneighbour contacts".)  Petros Hadjicostas, Jan 04 2019
