 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Also number of partitions of n with even number of even parts. There is no restriction on the odd parts. a(n) = u(n) + v(n), n >= 2, of the Osima reference, p. 383. Also number of partitions of n with largest part congruent to n modulo 2: a(2*n) = A027187(2*n), a(2*n-1) = A027193(2*n-1); a(n) = A000041(n) - A000701(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Apr 22 2006 Equivalently, number of partitions of n with number of parts having the same parity as n. - Olivier Gérard, Apr 04 2012 Also number of distinct free Young diagrams (Ferrers graphs with n nodes). Free Young diagrams are distinct when none is a rigid transformation (translation, rotation, reflection or glide reflection) of another. - Jani Melik, May 08 2016 Let the cycle type of an even permutation be represented by the partition A=(O1,O2,...,Oi,E1,E2,...,E2j), where the Os are parts with odd length and the Es are parts with even lengths, and where j may be zero, using Reinhard Zumkeller's observation that the partition associated with a cycle type of an even permutation has an even number of even parts. The set of even cycle types enumerated here can be considered a monoid under a binary operation *: Let A be as above and B=(o1,o2,...,ok,e1,e2,...,e2m). A*B is the partition (O1o1,O1o2,...,O1ok,O1e1,...,O1e2m,O2o1,...,O2e2m,...,Oio1,...,Oie2m,E1o1,...,E1e2m,...,E2je2m). This product has 2im+2jk+4jm even parts, so it represents the cycle type of an even permutation. - Richard Locke Peterson, Aug 20 2018 LINKS Seiichi Manyama, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000 (terms 0..1000 from T.
