COMMENTS

The generating function satisfies an algebraic equation of degree eight. I computed that generating function using the "turbo Temperley" method.

The formula for the generating function is given in the enclosed Maple worksheet.

The most practical version of the "turbo Temperley" method was given in Bousquet-Mélou's paper cited below.

The first five terms are the same as in the sequence A005435.

A005435(n) is the number of column-convex polyominoes with perimeter 2n + 2.

A049124(n) is the number of directed diagonally convex polyominoes with perimeter 2n.

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 2618, so there are 2618 nondirected diagonally convex polyominoes with perimeter 2*7 + 2 = 16.
