COMMENTS

An occurrence of a ranpp (xy;z) in a matrix A=(a(i,j)) is a triple (a(i1,j1), a(i1,j2), a(i2,j1)) where i1<i2, j1<j2 and these elements are in the same relative order as those in the triple (x,y,z). In general, the number of m X n 0-1 matrices in question is given by (m+3)*2^(m+n-2)-2^n-2^(m+1)+4 for m>0 and n>2; for n=2 the number is (m+1)*2^m.

FORMULA

a(n) = 11*2^n - 12.

From Chai Wah Wu, Jun 06 2016: (Start)

a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) for n > 4.

G.f.: 4*x^3*(19 - 16*x)/((1 - x)*(1 - 2*x)). (End)
