# Submitting a sequence derived here to OEIS

I did some analysis on a tiling problem and found that the sequence is not found in OEIS. Is it okay to submit the sequence and mention the shared link there?

It would be useful for you to state which problem this is, and I might be able to shed more light on it.

Note that contributing a sequence to OEIS often requires substantiation of why it is an important sequence. For example, the Fibonacci and Lucas numbers satisfy the recurrence relation $$T_{n+2} = T_{n+1} + T_n$$, with different initial values. All such sequences can be considered "interesting", but obviously not all such sequences will make it into OEIS.

Hi Calvin,

A related sequence without the constraint is available there, so thought that it would be nice to have this sequence also, and wanted to know how to cite the source.
