A045310 Number of matchings in n-cube. 4


%S 1,2,7,108,41025,13803794944,7174574164703330195841

%N Number of matchings in n-cube.

%C a(4) = A033532(1), a(5) = A033532(2).

%C a(3) = A033516(2) = A033535(2). - _Alois P. Heinz_, Dec 09 2013

%C Equivalently, the number of decompositions of an n-dimensional cube of size 2 into (zero or more) unit cubes (1 X 1 X ... X 1) and "dominoes" (2 X 1 X 1 X ... X 1). - _Hugo van der Sanden_, Nov 30 2016

%e From _Max Alekseyev_, Nov 16 2009: (Start)

%e E.g., for n=2, we have

%e 1 matching of size 0 (i.e., the empty matching)

%e 4 matchings of size 1 (i.e., an edge)

%e 2 matchings of size 2 (that are the perfect matchings).

%e So a(2) = 1 + 4 + 2 = 7, whereas A005271(2) = 2. (End)

%o For Perl and C programs see Links section.

%Y For perfect matchings see A005271.

%Y For matching polynomials, see A192437, A302235.

%Y Cf. A033532.
