COMMENTS

A fers is a leaper [1, 1].

Rotations and reflections of placements are not counted. If they are to be counted, see A201245.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-1,-16,19,20,-45,0,45,-20,-19,16,1,-4,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^8 - 30*n^6 + 48*n^5 + 328*n^4 - 1056*n^3 - 200*n^2 + 4176*n - 4032 + IF(MOD(n, 2) = 1, 14*n^4 - 48*n^3 - 38*n^2 + 336*n - 459))/192 for n>=3.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - a(n-2) - 16*a(n-3) + 19*a(n-4) + 20*a(n-5) - 45*a(n-6) + 45*a(n-8) - 20*a(n-9) - 19*a(n-10) + 16*a(n-11) + a(n-12) - 4*a(n-13) + a(n-14) for n>=17.
