 A286482 The number of convex n-gons with vertices consisting of pairs of positive integers (1, s_1), ..., (n, s_n) such that max(s_i) is minimized. 0

%N The number of convex n-gons with vertices consisting of pairs of positive integers (1, s_1), ..., (n, s_n) such that max(s_i) is minimized.

%C a(n) is even for all n > 2 because an n-gon whose vertices are defined by a function cannot have vertical symmetry, thus each polygon has a corresponding polygon which is flipped vertically.

%C For each n-gon, max(s_i) is equal to the maximum value in the n-th row of A285521.

%e For n = 8, the a(8) = 6 octagons are depicted below as three pairs, with the polygons on top being a vertical reflection of the polygons below (and vice versa).
