 OFFSET 1,2 LINKS Andrew Howroyd, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,5,-2,-1,1). FORMULA a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 5*a(n-3) - 2*a(n-4) - a(n-5) + a(n-6) for n > 6. G.f.: x^2*(3 - 3*x + 6*x^2 + x^3 - 2*x^4)/((1 - x)^2*(1 - 2*x + x^2 - x^3 - x^4)). EXAMPLE The a(3) = 9 chordless cycles consist of six 1 X 1 squares (covering 4 vertices), four 2 X 2 squares and one 2 X 3 rectangle. The a(4) = 24 solutions for the 4 X 4 grid include: O O O O .
