A214294 The maximum number of V-pentominoes covering the cells of square n × n. 0

%I

%S 0,0,1,2,4,6,8,12,14,18,22,27,32,37,43,49,55,62,69,77

%N The maximum number of V-pentominoes covering the cells of square n × n.

%C The problem of determining the maximum number of V-pentominoes (or the densest packing) covering the cells of the square n × n was proposed by A. Cibulis.

%C Problem for the squares 5 × 5, 6 × 6 and 8 × 8 was given in the Latvian Open Mathematics Olympiad 2000 for Forms 6, 8 and 5 respectively.

%C Solutions for the squares 3 × 3, 5 × 5, 8 × 8, 12 × 12, 16 × 16 are unique under rotation and reflection.

%e There is no way to cover square 3 × 3 with more than just one V-pentomino so a(3)=1.
