COMMENTS

Fixed quasi-pentominoes.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..24.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (9,-36,84,-126,126,-84,36,-9,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n-1)*(n-2)*(n+1)*(5*n^4-10*n^3-7*n^2+12*n+6)/24.

G.f.: x^3*(114+1884*x+4404*x^2+1884*x^3+114*x^4)/(1-x)^9. [Colin Barker, Apr 25 2012]

EXAMPLE

a(3)=114: there are 114 rotations of the 21 free (possibly) disconnected pentominoes bounded (not necessarily tightly) by an 3*3 square; these include the F, P, T, U, V, W, X and Z (connected) pentominoes and 13 strictly disconnected pentominoes.

CROSSREFS
