COMMENTS

Consider a figure made up of a row of n >= 1 adjacent congruent rectangles in which all possible diagonals of the rectangles have been drawn. The number of regions formed is A306302. If we distort all these diagonals very slightly so that no three lines meet at a point, the number of regions changes to a(n).

FORMULA

Satisfies the identity a(n) = A306302(n) + Sum_{k=3..(n+1)} binomial(k-1,2)*A333275(n,2*k). E.g. for n=4 we have a(4) = 104 + 8*1 + 2*3 + 1*6 = 124.

From Colin Barker, May 27 2020: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 3*x + 6*x^2 - x^3) / (1 - x)^5.

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>4.

(End)
