 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS This idea originated from the water retention model for mathematical surfaces and is identical to the concept of a "lake." A lake is body of water that has dimensions of (n-2) X (n-2) when the square size is nxn.  All other bodies of water are "ponds". Iwan Jensen with his transfer matrix algorithm provided the number of symmetrically redundant solutions.  Walter Trump enumerated the symmetrically unique solutions.
