Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Column 5 of A250656.

Since one edge length of the array is fixed, and the constraint is a Markov-type correlation between fixed-width lengths of the other edge, the generating function is computable by the usual transfer matrix method and therefore a rational polynomial. That predicts that there is a linear recurrence. - R. J. Mathar, May 25 2018

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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2); also a(n) = 2^(n-1)*25 + (5*2^(n-1)-1)*5 + 2^(n+1).

It appears that a(n) = 27*2^n-5, which would make this coincide with A304387. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 13 2018
