COMMENTS

By symmetry this is the same as the number of placements of zero or more dominoes on the n X m grid where no two empty squares are vertically adjacent.
The number of positions of m X n Domineering where horizontal (Right) has no moves, also called Right ends. Domineering is a game in which players take turns placing dominoes on a grid, one player placing vertically and the other horizontally until the player to place cannot place a domino.
All rows and columns are linear recurrences with constant coefficients. An upper bound on the order of the recurrence for columns is A005418(n+1), which is the number of binary words of length n up to reversal. An upper bound on the order of the recurrence for rows is A032120(m). This upper bound is exact for at least 1 <= m <= 6.  Andrew Howroyd, Feb 28 2020
