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.

A067247 Number of difference sets of subsets of {1,2,...,n}, i.e., the size of {A-A : A \subset [n] }, where A-A={a_i-a_j : a_i>a_j and a_i,a_j \in A}. 0

COMMENTS

2^(floor(n/2)) <= a(n) <= 2^n.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..26.

EXAMPLE

a(4)=6 because {1}, {1,2}, {1,3}, {1,4}, {1,2,3} and {1,2,4} have difference sets \emptyset, {1}, {2}, {3}, {1,2}, {1,2,3}, respectively and all 2^4 subsets of {1,2,3,4} have one of these difference sets.

SetToNumber = Compile[{{A, _Integer, 1}, {LP, _Integer}}, Plus @@ (2^Union[Flatten[Table[If[i > j, A[[i]] - A[[j]], 0], {j, LP}, {i, LP}]]])]; GetSetA = Compile[{{n, _Integer}}, Flatten[Position[IntegerDigits[n, 2], 1]]]; DS[n_] := Module[{LP, A}, A = GetSetA[n]; LP = Length[A]; SetToNumber[A, LP]]; newfset[d_] := Union[Table[DS[n], {n, 2^(d - 1) + 1, 2^d - 1, 2}]]; newf[d_] := newf[d] = Length[newfset[d]]; a[2] = 2; a[d_] := a[d] = newf[d] + a[d - 1];
