COMMENTS

Central terms of the triangle in A100851. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 04 2006

The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called p-colored compositions of n. For n>=1, a(n) equals the number of 12-colored compositions of n such that no adjacent parts have the same color. - Milan Janjic, Nov 17 2011

Starting with 12, this sequence appears in the film "Vollmond" (1998, dir. Fredi Murer), when the children write it on the sidewalk at night. - Alonso del Arte, Dec 21 2011

A001222(a(n)) = A008585(n); A000005(a(n)) = A000384(a(n)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 31 2012

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1-12*x)

E.g.f.: exp(12x)

a(n) = 12*a(n-1). - Zerinvary Lajos, Apr 27 2009

a(n) = A159991(n)/A000351(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 02 2009

a(n) = A000302(n) * A000244(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 31 2012

a(n) = det(|ps(i+2, j)|, 1 <= i, j <= n), where ps(n, k) are Legendre-Stirling numbers of the first kind. - Mircea Merca, Apr 04 2013
