COMMENTS

Coordination sequence for Dual(3^3.4^2) tiling with respect to a tetravalent node. This tiling is also called the prismatic pentagonal tiling, or the cem-d net. It is one of the 11 Laves tilings. (The identification of this coordination sequence with the g.f. in the definition was first conjectured by Colin Barker, Jan 22 2018.)

Also, coordination sequence for a tetravalent node in the "krl" 2-D tiling (or net).

Both of these identifications are easily established using the "coloring book" method - see the Goodman-Strauss & Sloane link.

For n>0, this is twice A047386 (numbers congruent to 0 or +-2 mod 7).
