 OFFSET 1,5 LINKS Ira M. Gessel, On the number of convex polyominoes, Ann. Sci. Math. Québec 24 (2000), no. 1, 63-66. FORMULA a(w,h) = binomial(2w+2h-4, 2w-2) + ((2w+2h-5)/2)*binomial(2w+2h-6, 2w-3) - 2(w+h-3)*binomial(w+h-2, w-1)*binomial(w+h-4, w-2), for w > 0, h > 0. a(w,h) = A093118(w-1,h-1). EXAMPLE For w=3 and h=2, the a(3,2)=13 polyominoes spanning a 3 X 2 rectangle are    XXX   X   XX   X    XX    XXX  XXX   XX  XXX  XXX plus all different horizontal and vertical reflections (1+2+2+4+4=13).
