%N Number of 3 X n binary arrays without the pattern 0 1 diagonally, vertically, antidiagonally or horizontally.

%C a(n) is the number of words of length n, x(1)x(2)...x(n), on the alphabet {0,1,2,3} such that, for i=2,...,n, x(i)=either x(i-1) or x(i-1)-1.

%C For the bijection between arrays and words, notice that the i-th column consists of 1's and then 0's, and there are x(i)=0 to 3 1's. - _Miquel A. Fiol_, Feb 06 2024

%H Alois P. Heinz, <a href="/A188554/b188554.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000</a> (terms n = 1..200 from R. H. Hardin)

%F Proved (for the number of sequences): a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4). (From this, the formulas below follow.) - _Miquel A. Fiol_, Feb 06 2024

%F a(n) = (1/6)*n^3 + (11/6)*n + 2 for n>=1.

%F G.f.: -(x^4 - 4*x^3 + 3*x^2 - 1)/(x - 1)^4. - _Colin Barker_, Mar 18 2012
