COMMENTS

A 9-pillow is a generalized Aztec pillow. The 9-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 9 horizontal squares to every 1 vertical square and steps down with steps of 1 horizontal square to every 1 vertical square.

Plotting A112844(n+2)/A112844(n) gives an intriguing damped sine curve.

EXAMPLE

The number of domino tilings of the 9-pillow of order 8 is 9065=7^2*185. A112844(n)=185.

CROSSREFS

A112842 breaks down as A112843^2 times A112844, where A112844 is not necessarily squarefree.
