FORMULA
Empirical: a(n) = 2*a(n-1) + a(n-2) + 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4).
a(n) = n*Sum_{k=0..n-1} C(2n-2k, 2k)/(n-k). - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 19 2011
L.g.f.: Sum_{n>=1} a(n)*x^n/n = -log((1+x+x^2)*(1-3*x+x^2))/2. - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 19 2011
Logarithmic derivative of A051286, which is the Whitney number of level n of the lattice of the ideals of the fence of order 2n. - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 19 2011
Empirical g.f.: x*(1+x+3*x^2-2*x^3)/(1+x+x^2)/(1-3*x+x^2). - Colin Barker, Feb 22 2012
Empirical: a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} A084534(n, 2*k). - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 17 2018
Empirical: a(n) = A100886(2n). - Wojciech Florek, Jan 26 2020
EXAMPLE
Some solutions for 4 X 2 with a(1,1)=0:
0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
1 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 1
0 1 0 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 1
0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1
The logarithmic g.f. begins:
L(x) = x + 3*x^2/2 + 10*x^3/3 + 23*x^4/4 + 61*x^5/5 + 162*x^6/6 + ..., where
exp(L(x)) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 5*x^3 + 11*x^4 + 26*x^5 + 63*x^6 + ... + A051286(n)*x^n/n + ... - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 19 2011
MAPLE
a := proc(n): n*add(binomial(2*n-2*k, 2*k)/(n-k), k=0..n-1) end: seq(a(n), n=1..28); # Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 18 2018
PROG
