COMMENTS

Also called Eulerian graphs of strength 1.
"Switching" at a node complements all the edges incident with that node. The illustration (see link) shows the 3 switching classes on 4 nodes. Switching at any node is the equivalence relation.
A graph is an Euler graph iff every node has even degree. It need not be connected. (Note that some graph theorists require an Euler graph to be connected so it has an Euler circuit, and call these graphs "even" graphs.)
The objects being counted in this sequence are unlabeled.

FORMULA

a(n) = sum_{s} 2^M(s)/product_{i} i^s(i)*s(i)!, where the sum is over ntuples s in [0..n]^n such that n=sum i*s(i), M(s) = sum_{i<j} s(i)*s(j)*gcd(i,j) + sum_{i} (s(i)*(floor[i/2]1)+i*binomial(s(i),2)) + sign(sum_{k} s(2k+1)). [Robinson's formula, from Mallows & Sloane, simplified.]  M. F. Hasler, Apr 15 2012; corrected by Sean A. Irvine, Nov 05 2014


EXAMPLE

From Joerg Arndt, Feb 05 2010: (Start)
The a(4) = 3 Euler graphs on four nodes are:
1) o o 2) oo 3) oo
o o /  
o o oo
(End)
