COMMENTS

The terms after the seventh are considered only of theoretical importance, since the largest dead shape is six spaces.

LINKS

Index to sequences with linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n)=a(n-1)+n-2 for n>=3.

Contribution from Paul Barry, Dec 07 2009: (Start)

G.f.: (1-x+x^3)/(1-x)^3;

a(n)=n+1-0^n+C(n-1,2). (End)

a(n) = A022856(n+2). - R. J. Mathar, Oct 30 2011

EXAMPLE

A 5-space big eye can be almost filled in 4 moves, after which one takes and has a 4-space big eye (5 liberties) left. This gives a total of 4+5 moves for the opponent and 1 for oneself, for de facto 8 liberties.
