Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = 103*a(n-1) + 1063*a(n-2) - 1873*a(n-3) - 20274*a(n-4) + 44071*a(n-5) - 10365*a(n-6) - 20208*a(n-7) + 5959*a(n-8) + 2300*a(n-9) - 500*a(n-10) for n > 10.

EXAMPLE

Three of the a(3) = 5193 subgraphs of the 5 X 3 grid with no leaf vertices are:
