Thanks for the note. I've updated a(101).

Any chance you can beat my a(99) = 27? That's my only value under 100 that goes past my upper bound. Another that might be easy to beat is a(60)=18.

Found nothing for a(99), but for a(60):

Code:
a(60)<=16

For the modified puzzle (when different orientation of the rectangle is permitted) computed up to n=45, see the tilings at https://oeis.org/A279596/a279596.txt
One crazy tiling is for n=29, this is using 34 rectangles:
Code:
a(29)=7

Very interesting solutions. This time, I already managed to find some of those optimal solutions already, but it's good to have all of them. Which one of those required the most time to find?

The last one: n=45 was the hardest, it took roughly 1 day (do not have the precise time).

If it would be easy, for values up to 24 or so (or whatever is easy), could you post solutions optimized for the most rectangles instead of the least rectangles?

For example, in the Variant for square 31, I have optimal solutions with 19 rectangles and 36 rectangles. Is that the full range? What other numbers of rectangles offer the optimal solution for square 31?

I'd like to make a puzzle called the Mondrian Cube, where a square with many solutions has lengths on the four edges so that a cube can be folded.

After a half day of search the possible number of rectangles in optimal tilings for n=3..29

ps. Note that I've used a slightly different strategy: in the main search for fixed defect looking for tiling in descending order of the minimal rectangle's area from those rectangles that are in the square's corner. [The tiling is started with that rectangle with letter 'a', in the square's upper left corner]. See for example in the oeis sequence for n=5 the example used 7 rectangles, but there is also a tiling for 6 rectangles.
Code:
a(3)=2; 3 rectangles;
aab

a(4)=2; 5 rectangles;

Many of those are unexpectedly wild. I didn't foresee the variant solution for 18 to have such a range.

I imagine the ranges for the standard problem will be much tamer by comparison.

Your solution for a(26) here uses each rectangle exactly twice, with all in different orientations. I have a similar solution for a(10), and no others.

It may be a good idea to keep track of the amount of rectangles used to create the squares. The values for the area will most likely be close to the value of the area of the square divided by the number of squares as we are looking for the closest values of area. This could potentially lead to some sort of correlation.
