A maximum of 2n nonattacking kings can be placed on a 4 X 2n chessboard.

FORMULA
a(n) = A231145(2*n+1, 2n).
Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 22 2018: (Start)
G.f.: (1 - 2*x)*(1 - 6*x + 17*x^2 - 18*x^3 - 2*x^4 + 7*x^5 + 6*x^6 - 3*x^7) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 - 3*x)^2*(1 - 3*x + x^2)*(1 - x - x^2)*(1 - 3*x^2)).
a(n) = 12*a(n-1) - 54*a(n-2) + 98*a(n-3) + 17*a(n-4) - 346*a(n-5) + 505*a(n-6) - 210*a(n-7) - 120*a(n-8) + 126*a(n-9) - 27*a(n-10) for n>9.
