Wikipedia, Camel_(chess)

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (2,-1,-1,2,-1,-1,2,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 2*(floor((n+6)/9) + floor((n+7)/9) + floor((n+8)/9))).

G.f.: 2*x / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x^3 + x^6)). - Colin Barker, May 26 2017

a(n) = 2*A093390(n+6).

EXAMPLE

For n=4 we need a(4)=6 camels to dominate a 2 X 4 board.

MATHEMATICA

Table[2*(Floor[(i+6)/9]+Floor[(i+7)/9]+Floor[(i+8)/9]), {i, 0, 67}]

PROG

(Python) [2*(int((i+6)/9)+int((i+7)/9)+int((i+8)/9)) for i in range(68)]

(PARI) concat(0, Vec(2*x / ((1 - x)^2*(1 + x^3 + x^6)) + O(x^100))) \\ Colin Barker, May 27 2017
