(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A060635 a(n) is the number of 2 X 1 domino tilings of the set S in the plane R^2 consisting of the union of the following two rectangles: rectangle1: |x| <= n, |y| <= 1, rectangle2: |x| <= 1, |y| <= n. 1
2, 8, 72, 450, 3200, 21632, 149058, 1019592, 6993800, 47922050, 328499712, 2251473408, 15432082562, 105772401800, 724976569800, 4969058770242, 34058447431808, 233440040239232, 1600021920672450, 10966713178192200 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The relevant graph has rotational symmetry so the number of tilings is a square or twice a square, in this case by the formula for a(n) it is always twice a square.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2 * F(n)^2 * F(n+1)^2 where F(n) is the n-th Fibonacci number - sequence A000045.

G.f.: -2*x*(1-x+x^2) / ( (x-1)*(x^2+3*x+1)*(x^2-7*x+1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Jan 30 2011

a(n) = -4*(-1)^n*A002878(n)/25 - 2/25 + 6*A049658(n)/25. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 30 2011

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 2 because in this case the set S is the unit square and there is one horizontal tiling and one vertical.

MAPLE
