A216492


Number of inequivalent connected planar figures that can be formed from n 1 X 2 rectangles (or dominoes) such that each pair of touching rectangles shares exactly one edge, of length 1, and the adjacency graph of the rectangles is a tree.

COMMENTS

Figures that differ only by a rotation and/or reflection are regarded as equivalent (cf. A216581).
A216583 is A216492 without the condition that the adjacency graph of the dominoes forms a tree.
This is a subset of polydominoes. It appears that a(n) < A216583(n) < A056785(n) < A056786(n) < A210996(n) < A210988(n) < A210986(n), if n >= 3.  Omar E. Pol, Sep 15 2012

EXAMPLE

One domino (2 X 1 rectangle) is placed on a table.
A 2nd domino is placed touching the first only in a single edge (length 1). The number of different planar figures is a(2)=3.
A 3rd domino is placed in any of the last figures, touching it and sharing just a single edge with it. The number of different planar figures is a(3)=18.
When n=4, we might place 4 dominoes in a ring, with a free square in the center. This is however not allowed, since the adjacency graph is a cycle, not a tree.

Without the condition that the adjacency graph forms a tree we get A216583 and A216595.
If we allow two long edges to meet we get A056786 and A216598.
