COMMENTS

Two irregular star-shaped 18-gons appear for n = 17.

There are also rare types of polygons appearing for n >= 16. See illustrations.

FORMULA

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Feb 08 2015: (Start)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)-2*a(n-2)+2*a(n-3)-a(n-4) for n>21.

G.f.: -x*(2*x^33 -4*x^32 +4*x^31 -6*x^30 +4*x^29 +2*x^26 -4*x^25 +4*x^24 -4*x^23 +2*x^22 -2*x^20 -4*x^19 +8*x^18 -2*x^17 +8*x^16 +2*x^15 -2*x^14 -2*x^13 -2*x^12 -2*x^11 -2*x^10 -2*x^9 -2*x^8 -2*x^7 -2*x^6 -2*x^5 -2*x^4 -x^3 -3*x^2 -2) / ((x -1)^2*(x^2 +1)).
