COMMENTS

Equivalent to a sequence of row-convex polyhexes (A059716).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..23.

FORMULA

G.f.: -((x(x-1)^3)/(1-7x+13x^2-10x^3+2x^4)).

a(n) = 7a(n-1)-13a(n-2)+10a(n-3)-2a(n-4) for n > 4.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 18 = A006770(3)-2 omits the two 3-plets with non-convex rows (V and inverted V).

MATHEMATICA

a[n_]:={1, 4, 18, 83}[[n]]/; n<5; a[n_]:=a[n]=7a[n-1]-13a[n-2]+10a[n-3]-2a[n-4]; Array[a, 23]

CROSSREFS

Cf. A006770 (all fixed polyplets); A059716 (row-convex polyhexes); A001169 (row-convex polyominoes).

Sequence in context: A052913 A279285 A129160 * A218986 A143646 A290916
