%N Number of cells in the 2nd rows of all deco polyominoes of height n. A deco polyomino is a directed column-convex polyomino in which the height, measured along the diagonal, is attained only in the last column.

%F a(n) = (1/4)*(3n-2)*(n-1)*(n-1)!.

%F a(n) = (1/2)*(3n-4)*(n-1)! + (n-1)*a(n-1); a(1)=0.

%F a(n) = (n+2)!*Sum_{k=1..n} ((2*k-1)/(k*(k+1)*(k+2))). - _Gary Detlefs_, Sep 20 2011

%e a(2)=1 because the horizontal domino has no cells in the 2nd row and the vertical domino has 1 cell in the 2nd row.
