Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Number of permutations of 1..n such that each position is fixed or moves to an adjacent position (with n considered adjacent to 1). For example, a(4) = 9 because there is the identity; 2 cyclic permutations; 4 swaps of one pair of adjacent entries; and 2 swaps of two pairs of adjacent entries. - Joshua Zucker, Nov 13 2003

FORMULA

For n>4, a(n) = a(n-1) + a(n-2) - 2. - Joshua Zucker, Nov 13 2003

a(n) = Fibonacci(n+1) + Fibonacci(n-1) + 2, for n>2. - Jessa Lee (jessal(AT)comcast.net), Nov 25 2003

For n > 2, a(n)=A001610(n-1) - 3. - Toby Gottfried, Apr 13 2013
