A296368 Coordination sequence for the Cairo or dual-3.3.4.3.4 tiling with respect to a trivalent point. 24
1, 3, 8, 12, 15, 20, 25, 28, 31, 36, 41, 44, 47, 52, 57, 60, 63, 68, 73, 76, 79, 84, 89, 92, 95, 100, 105, 108, 111, 116, 121, 124, 127, 132, 137, 140, 143, 148, 153, 156, 159, 164, 169, 172, 175, 180, 185, 188, 191, 196, 201, 204, 207, 212, 217, 220, 223, 228 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

There are two types of point in this tiling. This is the coordination sequence with respect to a point of degree 3.

The coordination sequence with respect to a point of degree 4 (see second illustration) is simply 1, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, ..., the same as the coordination sequence for the 4.4.4.4 square grid (A008574). See the CGS-NJAS link for the proof.

FORMULA

The simplest formula is: a(0)=1, a(1)=2, a(2)=8, and thereafter a(n) = 4n if n is odd, 4n - 1 if n == 0 (mod 4), and 4n+1 if n == 2 (mod 4). (See the CGS-NJAS link for proof. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 10 2018)

a(n + 4) = a(n) + 16 for any n >= 3. - Rémy Sigrist, Dec 23 2017 (See the CGS-NJAS link for a proof. - N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 30 2017)

G.f.: -(x^6-x^5-2*x^4-4*x^2-x-1)/((x^2+1)*(x-1)^2).

From Colin Barker, Dec 23 2017: (Start)

a(n) = (8*n - (-i)^n - i^n) / 2 for n>2, where i=sqrt(-1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) + 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n>6.
