Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

For n>4 this sequence is conjectured to be identical to A242511.

The same sequence results after replacing 'within n moves' with 'at shortest distance n moves'.

EXAMPLE

For n=5, there are 100 shortest paths of length 5 steps from (0,0) to (7,0); no square at 5 (or fewer) moves from the origin has more shortest paths.
