COMMENTS

Inspired by A061777, let us assign the label "1" to an origin pentagon; at n-th generation add a pentagon at each expandable vertex, i.e. a vertex such that the new added generations will not overlap to the existing ones, but overlapping among new generations are allowed. The non-overlapping pentagons will have the same label value as a predecessor; for the overlapping ones, the label value will be sum of label values of predecessors. The pentagons count is A005891. See illustration. For n >= 1, (a(n) - a(n-1))/5 is A027383.

FORMULA

a(0) = 1, for n >= 1, a(n) = 5*A027383(n) + a(n-1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)+2*a(n-4). G.f.: -(2*x^3+3*x^2+4*x+1) / ((x-1)^2*(2*x^2-1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 21 2014
