 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS a(n) = |non-injective functions [n]->[n]| = |non-surjective functions [n]->[n]|. Fit a polynomial f of degree n-1 to the first n n-th powers of nonnegative integers. Then a(n) = f(n). - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Dec 28 2006 n^n > n! for n >= 3. [Mitrinovic] REFERENCES D. S. Mitrinovic, Analytic Inequalities, Springer-Verlag, 1970; p. 193, 3.1.22. LINKS T. D.
