Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,7,-2,-3).

FORMULA

a(n) = b(1)a(n-1)+b(2)a(n-2)+...+b(n)a(0), where a(0)=a(1)=1 and b(1)=1, b(2)=7, b(n)=F(n+1)of A000045 (Fibonacci numbers) for n>2.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + 7*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) - 3*a(n-4). - Keith Schneider (kschneid(AT)bulldog.unca.edu), Apr 02 2006

G.f.: (1-x-x^2)/(1-2*x-7*x^2+2*x^3+3*x^4). [R. J. Mathar, Nov 02 2008]

EXAMPLE

a(2)=8 as there is one tiling of a 5 X 2 area with only 1 X 1 tiles, 4 tilings with exactly one 2 X 2 tile and 3 tilings with exactly two 2 X 2 tiles.

MATHEMATICA

f[{A_, B_}] := Module[{til = A, basic = B}, {Flatten[Append[til, ListConvolve[A, B]]], AppendTo[basic, 2 Fibonacci[Length[B] + 2]]}]; NumOfTilings[n_] := Nest[f, {{1, 1}, {1, 7}}, n - 2][[1]] NumOfTilings[30]
