 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS A quasi-polyomino is a polyomino whose cells are not necessarily connected. For all m > 1 there are an infinite number of quasi-m-ominoes; a(n) counts the quasi-triomino (quasi-3-omino) equivalence classes (under translation, rotation by 90 degrees and vertical and horizontal symmetry) whose members fit into an n X n bounding box. This is different from A082966 because that sequence considers these two (for example) as different ways of placing 3 counters on a 3 X 3 checkerboard: --- -X- X-X and -X- X-X --- whereas here they are the same quasi-polyomino. a(n) can also be interpreted as the number of non-equivalent Game of Life patterns on an n X n board that have exactly 3 live cells, etc. LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Erich Friedman, Illustration of initial terms Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-1,-5,5,1,-3,1).
