%N Number of rooted planar trees with n non-root nodes: circularly cycling the subtrees at the root gives equivalent trees.

%C Also number of necklaces with 2n beads, n white and n black (to get the correspondence, start at root, walk around outside of tree, use white if move away from the root, black if towards root).

%C Also number of terms in polynomial expression for permanent of generic circulant matrix of order n.

%C a(n) is the number of equivalence classes of n-compositions of n under cyclic rotation. (Given a necklace, split it into runs of white followed by a black bead and record the lengths of the white runs. This gives an n-composition of n.) a(n)=number of n-multisets in Z mod n whose sum is 0. - _David Callan_, Nov 05 2003
