 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS The barycenter or signcenter of a permutation is the sum of the signs of the difference between initial and final positions of the objects. LINKS Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..450 (first 151 terms from Maxwell Jiang) FORMULA a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} binomial(n, n-2*k)*A320337(k). - Maxwell Jiang, Dec 19 2018 (added by editors) a(n) ~ sqrt(3) * (1 + exp(-2)*(-1)^n) * n^n / exp(n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 29 2020 EXAMPLE (4,1,3,5,2) has difference (3,-1,0,1,-3) and signs (1,-1,0,1,-1) with total 0.
