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 (of finite length). The lines do not extend outside the grid. T(m,n) is the number of line segments formed when these lines intersect each other, and A331452(m,n) and A331453(m,n) give the number of regions and the number of vertices respectively.
For illustrations see the links in A331452.
