COMMENTS

The subset of nodes is contained in the top lefthand quarter of the rectangle and has nodal dimensions floor((n+1)/2) and 2 to capture all geometrically distinct counts. The quarterrectangle is read by rows. The irregular array of numbers is:
....k.....1.....2.....3.....4.....5.....6.....7.....8.....9....10....11....12
..n
..2.......5.....0
..3......14.....2.....2.....0
..4......33.....4.....6.....0
..5......75.....6....13.....0....16.....0
..6.....165.....8....27.....0....32.....0
..7.....353....10....57.....0....62.....0....60.....0
..8.....747....12...119.....0...124.....0...109.....0
..9....1577....14...247.....0...250.....0...206.....0...184.....0
.10....3327....16...515.....0...508.....0...399.....0...323.....0
.11....7015....18..1079.....0..1046.....0...790.....0...590.....0...520.....0
.12...14785....20..2267.....0..2176.....0..1601.....0..1121.....0...877.....0
where k indicates the position of the end node in the quarterrectangle. For each n, the maximum value of k is 2*floor((n+1)/2). Reading this array by rows gives the sequence.

FORMULA

Let T(n,k) denote an element of the irregular array then it appears that
T(n,k) = 0, n >= 3, k = 2j, j >= 2,
T(n,1)  2T(n1,1)  T(n4,1)  8 = 0, n >= 8,
T(n,2) = 2(n2), n >= 2,
T(n,3)  2T(n1,3)  T(n4,3) + 2(n7) = 0, n >= 9,
T(n,5)  2T(n1,5)  T(n4,5) + 8(n7) = 0, n >= 10,
T(n,7)  2T(n1,7)  T(n4,7) + 20(n8) + 8 = 0, n >= 11,
T(n,9)  2T(n1,9)  T(n4,9) + 46(n9) + 30 = 0, n >= 13,
T(n,11)  2T(n1,11)  T(n4,11) + 104(n10) + 84 = 0, n >= 15,
T(n,13)  2T(n1,13)  T(n4,13) + 226(n11) + 202 = 0, n >= 15.


EXAMPLE

When n = 2, the number of times (NT) each node in the rectangle is the end node (EN) of a complete nonselfadjacent simple path is
EN 0 1 2
3 4 5
NT 5 0 5
5 0 5
To limit duplication, only the top lefthand corner 5 and the 0 to its right are stored in the sequence, i.e. T(2,1) = 5 and T(2,2) = 0.
