FORMULA

a(n) = 28*floor(n/2) - 20 for n >= 10. - Andrew Howroyd, Feb 28 2020

From Stefano Spezia, Feb 29 2020: (Start)

G.f.: (1 + 6*x^2 + 12*x^3 + 5*x^4 + 8*x^5 + 4*x^6 - 12*x^7 + 4*x^8 - 8*x^9 + 4*x^10 + 4*x^12)/((1 - x)^2*(1 + x)).

a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - a(n-3) for n > 12. (End)

EXAMPLE

On a 5 X 5 board, [ m(0),...,m(4) ]=[ 1,8,8,4,4 ], max=8, so a(2)=8.

PROG

(PARI) Vec((1 + x^2)*(1 + 5*x^2 + 12*x^3 - 4*x^5 + 4*x^6 - 8*x^7 + 4*x^10) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x)) + O(x^50)) \\ Colin Barker, Mar 16 2020
