Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

By the "width" of the strip is meant the number of squares in a corner-to-corner ring around the cylinder.

For the case when the cuts are parallel to grid lines, see A329501.

See A329508 ... for coordination sequences for cylinders formed by rolling up the hexagonal grid ("carbon nanotubes").

FORMULA

Let theta = (1+x)/(1-x). The g.f. for the coordination sequence for row n is theta*(1+2x+2x^2+...+2x^(n-1)-(n-1)*x^n).
