Abstract: We study polynomial generalizations of the r-Fibonacci and r-Lucas sequences which arise in connection with a certain statistic on linear and circular $r$-mino arrangements, respectively. By considering special values of these polynomials, we derive periodicity and parity theorems for this statistic on the respective structures.
(Concerned with sequences A000045 and A000204 .)
