COMMENTS

A squared rectangle (which may be a square, but not in this particular sequence) is a rectangle dissected into a finite number, two or more, of integer sized squares. If no two of these squares have the same size the squared rectangle is perfect. A squared rectangle is simple if it does not contain a smaller squared rectangle. The order of a squared rectangle is the number of constituent squares.

FORMULA

a(n) = A002839(n)  A006983(n).
In 'A Census of Planar Maps', William Tutte gave an asymptotic formula for the number of perfect squared rectangles where n is the number of elements in the dissection (the order):
a(n) = ((n^(5/2))*(4^n))/(2^5*sqrt(pi)).
