R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/24)*n^4 + (1/12)*n^3 + (23/24)*n^2 - (1/12)*n + 2.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 28 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(3 - 8*x + 11*x^2 - 7*x^3 + 2*x^4) / (1 - x)^5.

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>5.

(End)

EXAMPLE

Some solutions for n=3:

..0..0....0..0....1..1....1..1....0..0....1..1....1..1....1..1....0..0....1..1

..0..1....0..0....1..2....0..0....0..1....1..1....0..0....0..0....0..2....1..1

..1..2....0..0....2..2....0..0....0..0....1..2....0..1....0..2....2..2....1..1
