FORMULA
a(n) = prod(F(2*i)^2, i=1..n) where F(i) are the Fibonacci numbers.
EXAMPLE
a(2) = 9 since there are nine tilings of the two X two square with ribbon tiles - the tiling with four monominoes, the four tilings with one domino and two monominoes, the two tilings with two dominoes and two tilings with a tromino and a monomino (the monomino is in either the SE or NW corner).
MAPLE
with(combinat); F := fibonacci; seq(product(F(2*j)^2, j=0..n), n=1..12);
