A286436 Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n, k) = number of ways to tile an n X n X n triangular area with k 2 X 2 X 2 triangular tiles and an appropriate number (= n^2-4*k) of 1 X 1 X 1 tiles. 8

COMMENTS

The triangle T(n, k) is irregularly shaped: For n >= 4: 0 <= k <= n^2/4 if n is even, 0 <= k <= (n^2 -9)/4 if n is odd. First row corresponds to n = 1.

Rotations and reflections of tilings are counted. If they are to be ignored, see A286443. Tiles of the same size are indistinguishable.

For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A193580.

EXAMPLE

The triangle begins with T(1, 0):

1;

1,  1;

1,  3;

1,  7,   9,   4,   1;

1, 13,  48,  63,  25;

1, 21, 153, 494, 747, 546, 219, 57, 9, 1;

T(4, 3) = 4 because there are 4 ways to tile an area of size 4X4X4 with 3 tiles of size 2X2X2 and fill up the rest with tiles of size 1X1X1.
