Table of n, a(n) for n=0..23.

S. Heubach, Tiling an m-by-n area with squares of size up to k-by-k (m<=5), Congressus Numerantium 140 (1999), 43-64.

FORMULA

a(n) = b(1)a(n-1)+b(2)a(n-2)+...+b(n)a(0), a(0)=a(1)=1, b(n) as defined in A054858.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) +7*a(n-2) +6*a(n-3) -a(n-4) -5*a(n-5) -2*a(n-6) -3*a(n-7) -a(n-8). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 02 2008

G.f.: -(x^3+x^2+x-1)/(x^8+3*x^7+2*x^6+5*x^5+x^4-6*x^3-7*x^2-2*x+1). - Colin Barker, Jul 10 2012

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 8 as there is 1 tiling of a 5 X 2 region 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, B[ [ -1 ] ] + B[ [ -2 ] ] + B[ [ -3 ] ] ]} ]; NumOfTilings[ n_ ] := Nest[ f, {{1, 1, 8, 28, 117, 472, 1916, 7765}, {1, 7, 13, 20, 35, 66, 118, 218}}, n - 2 ][ [ 1 ] ] NumOfTilings[ 30 ]
