 OFFSET 1,6 COMMENTS A string and its reverse are considered to be equivalent. Permuting the colors will not change the structure. Number of set partitions for an unoriented row of n elements using exactly five different elements. An unoriented row is equivalent to its reverse. - Robert A. Russell, Oct 14 2018 REFERENCES M. R. Nester (1999). Mathematical investigations of some plant interaction designs. PhD Thesis. University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. [See A056391 for pdf file of Chap. 2] LINKS FORMULA a(n) = A056324(n) - A056323(n). Empirical g.f.: -x^5*(70*x^5 - 102*x^4 + 22*x^3 + 7*x^2 - 4*x + 1) / ((x-1)*(2*x-1)*(2*x+1)*(3*x-1)*(4*x-1)*(5*x-1)*(2*x^2-1)*(5*x^2-1)). - Colin Barker, Nov 25 2012 From Robert A. Russell, Oct 14 2018: (Start) a(n) = (S2(n,k) + A(n,k))/2, where k=5 is the number of colors (sets), S2 is the Stirling subset number A008277 and A(n,k) = [n>1] * (k*A(n-2,k) + A(n-2,k-1) + A(n-2,k-2)) + [n<2 & n==k & n>=0]. a(n) = (A000481(n) + A304975(n)) / 2 = A000481(n) - A320528(n) = A320528(n) + A304975(n). (End) EXAMPLE For a(6)=9, the color patterns are ABCDEA, ABCDBA, ABCCDE, AABCDE, ABACDE, ABCADE, ABCDAE, ABBCDE, and ABCBDE. The first three are achiral. - Robert A.
