A265046 Coordination sequence for a 4.6.6 point in the 3-transitive tiling {4.6.6, 6.6.6, 6.6.6.6} of the plane by squares and dominoes (hexagons). 3

COMMENTS

This tiling is 3-transitive but not 3-uniform since the polygons are not regular. It is a common floor-tiling.

The coordination sequences with respect to the points of types 4.6.6 (labeled "C" in the illustration), 6.6.6 ("B"), 6.6.6.6 ("A") are A265046, A265045, and A008574, respectively. The present sequence is for a "C" point.

FORMULA

For n >= 7 all three sequences equal 4n. (For n >= 7 the n-th shell contains n-1 points in the interior of each quadrant plus 4 points on the axes.)

From Colin Barker, Jan 01 2016: (Start)

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)-a(n-2) for n>8.

a(n) = 4*n for n>6.

G.f.: (1+x)*(1+x^3+x^4-x^5+x^6-x^7) / (1-x)^2.

(End)
