COMMENTS

A bargraph is a polyomino whose bottom is a segment of the nonnegative xaxis and whose upper part is a lattice path starting at (0,0) and ending with its first return to the xaxis using steps U=(0,1), D=(0,1) and H=(1,0), where UD and DU are not allowed.
The siteperimeter of a polyomino is the number of exterior cells having a common edge with at least one polyomino cell.
a(n)^(1/n) tends to 2.222118... .  Vaclav Kotesovec, Jun 26 2016
