COMMENTS

The complement of a plane partition inside an m*m*m cube consists of the boxes which are within the cube, but not in the plane partition, rotated in an appropriate way.
a(n) is the number of plane partitions inside an 2n*2n*2n cube whose (matrix) transpose when written as an 2n*2n array is the same as its complement.

FORMULA

a(n) = binomial(3n1,n)*Product(i=1..2n2,Product(j=i..2n2,(2n+i+j+1)/(i+j+1)))


EXAMPLE

When n=2, there are two transposecomplementary plane partitions,
[1 1] and [2 1], both of whose transpose and complement is equal to themselves.
[1 1] [1 0]
