 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Also, number of 2-compositions of n that have no odd entries in the top row. A 2-composition of n is a nonnegative matrix with two rows, such that each column has at least one nonzero entry and whose entries sum up to n. a(n)=A181304(n,0). REFERENCES G. Castiglione, A. Frosini, E. Munarini, A. Restivo and S. Rinaldi, Combinatorial aspects of L-convex polyominoes, European Journal of Combinatorics, 28, 2007, 1724-1741. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2, 2, -2). FORMULA G.f. =(1+z)(1-z)^2/(1-2z-2z^2+2z^3). a(0)=1, a(1)=1, a(2)=3, a(3)=7, a(n)=2*a(n-1)+2*a(n-2)-2*a(n-3) [From Harvey P. Dale, Mar 07 2012] EXAMPLE a(2)=3 because we have (1/1), (2/0), and (1,1/0,0) (the 2-compositions are written as (top row / bottom row). Alternatively, a(2)=3 because we have (0/2),(2,0), and (0,0/1,1) (the 2-compositions are written as (top row/bottom row)).
