A214042 Irregular array T(n,k) of the numbers of non-extendable (complete) non-self-adjacent simple paths starting at each of a minimal subset of nodes within a square lattice bounded by rectangles with nodal dimensions n and 9, n >= 2. 2

COMMENTS

The subset of nodes is contained in the top left-hand quarter of the rectangle and has nodal dimensions floor((n+1)/2) and 5 to capture all geometrically distinct counts.

The quarter-rectangle is read by rows.

The irregular array of numbers is:

...k.....1.....2.....3.....4.....5.....6.....7.....8.....9....10....11....12....13....14....15

.n

.2......55....36....24....18....16

.3.....732...476...294...197...168...628...302...148....82....64

.4....6115..4840..3979..3349..3076..5170..2597..1718..1595..1564

.5...64904.57210.52820.46787.43294.53478.31544.26459.28472.28700.50228.22432.19802.27924.30696

where k indicates the position of the start node in the quarter-rectangle.

For each n, the maximum value of k is 5*floor((n+1)/2).

Reading this array by rows gives the sequence.

C. H. Gribble, Computes characteristics of complete non-self-adjacent paths in square and cubic lattices bounded by various sizes of rectangle and rectangular cuboid respectively.

EXAMPLE

When n = 2, the number of times (NT) each node in the rectangle is the start node (SN) of a complete non-self-adjacent simple path is

SN  0  1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8

    9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17

NT 55 36 24 18 16 18 24 36 55

   55 36 24 18 16 18 24 36 55

To limit duplication, only the top left-hand corner 34 and the 23, 16 and 13 to its right are stored in the sequence, i.e. T(2,1) = 34, T(2,2) = 23, T(2,3) = 16 and T(2,4) = 13.
