A318897 Number of tilings of the even-order sphinx with the two dominoes that form the second-order sphinx. 2
1, 8, 5433, 28925040 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



There are 46 sphinx dominoes. The order 2 sphinx is composed of two different dominoes. These two dominoes are used to tile the even-order sphinx.

The orientation of the order 8 sphinx in the link below is essential for the bit-vector bottom-up search to efficiently find solutions. All order 8 solutions are found in a few minutes.


Table of n, a(n) for n=1..4.
