COMMENTS

Chessboardcolored polyominoes, considering to be distinct two shapes that cannot be mapped onto each other by any form of symmetry. For example, there are two distinct monominoes, one black, one white. There is only one domino, with one black square, and one white.  John Mason, Nov 25 2013

FORMULA

For odd n, a(n) = 2*A000105(n).
For n multiple of 2 but not of 4, a(n) = 2*A000105(n)  (A234006(n/2) + A234008(n/2)).
For n multiple of 4, a(n) = 2*A000105(n)  (A234006(n/2) + A234008(n/2) + A234007(n/4)).  John Mason, Dec 23 2021
