COMMENTS

These values also appear in a wider context when counting elements of finite groups by cycle structure. For example, the alternating group on four symbols has 12 elements; eight associated with the partition 3+1, three associated with 2+2 and the identity associated with 1+1+1+1. The cross-referenced sequences are all associated with similar numeric partitions and "M2" weights.
