FORMULA

G.f.: g(z) = z^2 (2 - z - z^3 - z q )^2 /(1 - 4z + z^4 + q + z^2 q)^2, where q = sqrt(1 - 4z + 2z^2 + z^4) (see Section 4.3 of the Blecher et al. reference).

a(n) = Sum(k*A273346(n,k), k>=1).

a(n) = ((69-115*n+28*n^2)*a(n-1) -(264-265*n+52*n^2)*a(n-2) +(3*(29-29*n+4*n^2))*a(n-3) -(3*(10-21*n+4*n^2))*a(n-4) +(4*n-9) * (5*n-29)*a(n-5) +(4*n-13)*(n-6)*a(n-6) +(n-7)*(4*n-9)*a(n-7))/ (n*(4*n-13)) for n>=7. - Alois P. Heinz, Jun 04 2016

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 16  because the 5 (=A082582(4)) bargraphs of semiperimeter 4 correspond to the compositions [1,1,1], [1,2], [2,1], [2,2], [3] and, clearly, the sum of their areas is 3 + 3 + 3 + 4 + 3 = 16.

MAPLE

Q := sqrt(1-4*z+2*z^2+z^4): g := z^2*(2-z-z^3-z*Q)^2/(1-4*z+z^4+Q+z^2*(2+Q))^2; gser:= series(g, z = 0, 40): seq(coeff(gser, z, m), m = 2 .. 35);

# second Maple program:

a:= proc(n) option remember;

      `if`(n<7, [0$2, 1, 4, 16, 60, 218, 778][n+1],

      ((69-115*n+28*n^2)*a(n-1) -(264-265*n+52*n^2)*a(n-2)

       +(3*(29-29*n+4*n^2))*a(n-3) -(3*(10-21*n+4*n^2))*a(n-4)

       +(4*n-9)*(5*n-29)*a(n-5) +(4*n-13)*(n-6)*a(n-6)

       +(n-7)*(4*n-9)*a(n-7))/(n*(4*n-13)))

    end:

seq(a(n), n=2..30);  # Alois P. Heinz, Jun 04 2016
