COMMENTS

The zonotope Z(D,d) is the projection of the D-dimensional hypercube onto the d-dimensional space and the tiles are the projections of the d-dimensional faces of the hypercube. Here the codimension, i.e., D-d, is constant = 3 and d >= 0.

Also the number of signotopes on r+2 elements of rank r. A signotope on n elements of rank r is a mapping X:{{1..n} choose r}->{+,-} such that for any r+1 indices I={i_0,...,i_r} with i_0 < i_1 < ... < i_r, the sequence X(I-i_0), X(I-i_1), ..., X(I-i_r) changes its sign at most once (see Felsner-Weil reference). - Manfred Scheucher, Feb 09 2022

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Feb 20 2013: (Start)

a(n) = 2*(-3+7*2^n+(-1+2^n)*n).

G.f.: -2*(4*x^3-11*x^2+12*x-4) / ((x-1)^2*(2*x-1)^2). (End)

The above conjectures are correct; see Proposition 7.1 in Ziegler's article. - Manfred Scheucher, Feb 09 2022

a(n) = 2 * A133546(n+2). - Alois P. Heinz, Feb 11 2022

EXAMPLE

For any Z(D,d), the number of codimension 0 tilings is always 1, with codimension 1 it is 2, with codimension 2 it is 2.D.

PROG

(Python) print([2**(n + 1)*(n + 7) - 2*n - 6 for n in range(100)])
