COMMENTS

Transposed variant of A083856.  R. J. Mathar, Aug 23 2011
As to the sequences by columns beginning (1, N, ...), let m = (N1). The g.f. for the sequence (1, N, ...) is 1/(1  x  m*x^2). Alternatively, the corresponding matrix generator is [[1,1], [m,0]]. Another equivalency is simply: The sequence beginning (1, N, ...) is the INVERT transform of (1, m, 0, 0, 0, ...). Convergents to the sequences a(n)/a(n1) are (1 + sqrt(4*m+1))/2.  Gary W.

FORMULA

With z X 1 tiles of k colors on an n X 1 grid (with n >= z), either there is a tile (of any of the k colors) on the first spot, followed by any configuration on the remaining (nz) X 1 grid, or the first spot is vacant, followed by any configuration on the remaining (n1) X 1. Thus, T(n,k) = T(n1,k) + k*T(nz,k), with T(n,k) = 1 for n = 0, 1, ..., z1.
The solution is T(n,k) = Sum_r r^(n1)/(1 + z*k*r^(z1)), where the sum is over the roots r of the polynomial k*x^z + x  1.
For z = 2, T(n,k) = ((2*k / (sqrt(1 + 4*k)  1))^(n+1)  (2*k/(sqrt(1 + 4*k) + 1))^(n+1)) / sqrt(1 + 4*k).
T(n,k) = Sum_{s=0..[n/2]} binomial(ns,s) * k^s.
For z X 1 tiles, T(n,k,z) = Sum_{s = 0..[n/z]} binomial(n(z1)*s, s) * k^s.  R. H. Hardin, Jul 31 2011
