COMMENTS

The subset of nodes approximately defines the top lefthand quarter of the rectangle and has nodal dimensions floor((n+1)/2) and 2 to capture all geometrically distinct counts.
The quarterrectangle is read by rows.
The irregular array of numbers is:
....k.....1....2....3....4....5....6....7....8....9...10...11...12
..n
..2.......3....4
..3.......8....6....6....8
..4......17...14...12...10
..5......36...32...25...18...20...12
..6......77...68...51...36...38...20
..7.....164..142..106...72...72...38...64...28
..8.....347..298..225..146..142...74..109...46
..9.....732..628..476..302..294..148..197...82..168...64
.10....1543.1324.1003..632..614..304..385..156..277..100
.11....3252.2790.2112.1328.1284..634..777..312..504..174..414..136
where k indicates the position of the start node in the quarterrectangle.
For each n, the maximum value of k is 2*floor((n+1)/2).
Reading this array by rows gives the sequence.

FORMULA

It appears that:
T(n,1)  2*T(n1,1)  T(n4,1)  2 = 0, n >= 6
T(n,2)  2*T(n1,2)  T(n4,1) = 0, n >= 6
T(n,3)  2*T(n1,3)  T(n4,1) = 0, n >= 10
T(n,4)  2*T(n1,4)  T(n4,1) + 8 = 0, n >= 7


EXAMPLE

When n = 2, the number of times (NT) each node in the rectangle is the start node (SN) of a complete nonselfadjacent simple path is
SN 0 1 2
3 4 5
NT 3 4 3
3 4 3
To limit duplication, only the top lefthand corner 3 and the 4 to its right are stored in the sequence, i.e. T(2,1) = 3 and T(2,2) = 4.
