COMMENTS

Take a grid of m+1 X n+1 points. There are 2*(m+n) points on the perimeter. Join every pair of the perimeter points by a line segment. The lines do not extend outside the grid. T(m,n) is the number of regions formed by these lines, and A331453(m,n) and A331454(m,n) give the number of vertices and the number of line segments respectively.
A288187 is a similar sequence, except there every pair of the (m+1)*(n+1) points of the grid (including the interior points) are joined by line segments. The (m,1) (m>=1) and (2,2) entries here and in A288187 are the same, while all other entries are different.
