COMMENTS

A 7-pillow is a generalized Aztec pillow. The 7-pillow of order n is a rotationally-symmetric region. It has a 2 X 2n central band of squares and then steps up from this band with steps of 7 horizontal squares to every 1 vertical square and steps down with steps of 1 horizontal square to every 1 vertical square.

Plotting A112841(n+2)/A112841(n) gives an intriguing damped sine curve.

EXAMPLE

The number of domino tilings of the 7-pillow of order 8 is 23353=11^2*193. A112841(n)=193.

CROSSREFS

A112839 breaks down as A112840^2 times A112841, where A112841 is not necessarily squarefree.
