Value of Tutte dichromatic polynomial T_G(0,1) where G is the Cartesian product of the paths P_2 and P_n (n>1).

The value of Tutte dichromatic polynomial T_G(0,1) where G is the Cartesian product of the paths P_1 and P_n (n>1) is seen to be 2^(n-1), which is also the number of edge-rooted forests in P_n.

In 1956, Andrzej Schinzel showed that for every n >= 2, a(n) is not a value of Euler's function. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Oct 20 2013

Apart from first term 2, these are the numbers that satisfy phi(n) = 3*n/7. - Michel Marcus, Jul 14 2015
