title: | Enumeration of convex polyominoes using the ECO method |

keywords: | convex polyominoes, ECO method, succession rules, kernel method, generating functions. |

abstract: | ECO is a method for the enumeration of classes of combinatorial objects based on recursive constructions of such classes. In the first part of this paper we present a construction for the class of convex polyominoes based on the ECO method. Then we translate this construction into a succession rule. The final goal of the paper is to determine the generating function of convex polyominoes according to the semi-perimeter, and it is achieved by applying an idea introduced in [11]. |

The first *source* gives you
the `gzipped' PostScript, the second the plain PostScript and the
third the format for the Adobe accrobat reader. Depending on the
installation of your web browser, at least one of these should
(after some amount of time) pop up a window for you that shows
the full article. If this is not the case, you should contact
your system administrator to install your browser
correctly.

Due to limitations of your local software, the two formats may show up differently on your screen. If eg you use xpdf to visualize pdf, some of the graphics in the file may not come across. On the other hand, pdf has a capacity of giving links to sections, bibliography and external references that will not appear with PostScript.
