COMMENTS

Equivalently, number of connected unicyclic (i.e. containing one cycle) graphs on n labeled nodes.  Vladeta Jovovic, Oct 26 2004
a(n) is the number of trees on vertex set [n] = {1,2,...,n} rooted at 1 with one marked inversion (an inversion is a pair (i,j) with i>j and j a descendant of i in the tree). Here is a bijection from the title graphs (on [n]) to these marked trees. A title graph has exactly one cycle. There is a unique path from vertex 1 to this cycle, first meeting it at k, say (k may = 1). Let i and j be the two neighbors of k in the cycle, with i the larger of the two. Delete the edge k<>j thereby forming a tree (in which j is a descendant of i) and take (i,j) as the marked inversion. To reverse this map, create a cycle by joining the smaller element of the marked inversion to the parent of the larger element. a(n) = binom(n1,2)A129137(n). This is because, on the above marked trees, the marked inversion is uniformly distributed over 2element subsets of {2,3,...,n} and so a(n)/binom(n1,2) is the number of trees on [n] (rooted at 1) for which (3,2) is an inversion.

FORMULA

The number of labeled connected graphs with n nodes and m edges is Sum_{k=1..n} (1)^(k+1)/k*Sum_{n_1+n_2+..n_k=n, n_i>0} n!/(Product_{i=1..k} (n_i)!)*binomial(s, m), s=Sum_{i..k} binomial(n_i, 2).  Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 10 2001
E.g.f.: (1/2) Sum_{k>=3} T(x)^k/k, with T(x)= Sum_{n>=1} n^(n1)/n! x^n. R. J. Riddell's thesis contains a closedform expression for the number of connected graphs with m nodes and n edges. The present series applies to the special case m=n.
E.g.f.: 1/2*log(1+LambertW(x))+1/2*LambertW(x)1/4*LambertW(x)^2.  Vladeta Jovovic, Jul 09 2001
Asymptotic expansion (with xi=sqrt(2*Pi)): n^(n1/2)*[xi/47/6*n^(1/2)+xi/48*n^(1)+131/270*n^(3/2)+xi/1152*n^(2)+4/2835*n^(5/2)+O(n^(3))].  Keith Briggs (keith.briggs(AT)bt.com), Aug 16 2004
Row sums of A098909: a(n) = (n1)!*n^n/2*Sum_{k=3..n} 1/(n^k*(nk)!).  Vladeta Jovovic, Oct 26 2004


EXAMPLE

E.g., a(4)=15 because there are three different (labeled) 4cycles and 12 different labeled graphs with a 3cycle and an attached, external vertex.
