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.

COMMENTS

Possibly the number of patterns for forming an ordered sum of n values v1+v2+...+vn chosen (possibly with repetition) from {b1,b2,...,bn} with b1<b2<...<bn, where the question of whether v1+v2+...+vn is greater than, less than or equal to b1+b2+...+bn depends of the values of {b1,b2,...,bn}: for example with n=3 b2+b2+b2 is not immediately clear, while with n=4 there are 30 unclear possibilities namely b2+b2+b2+b2, b3+b3+b3+b3, 6 permutations of b1+b1+b4+b4, 6 permutations of b2+b2+b3+b3, 4 permutations of b2+b2+b2+b3, 4 permutations of b2+b3+b3+b3, 4 permutations of b2+b2+b2+b4 and 4 permutations of b1+b3+b3+b3.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..18.

FORMULA

a(n) =A000312(n)+A000142(n)-2*A000272(n+1)

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2^2+2!-2*3^1=4+2-6=0. a(3)=3^3+3!-2*4^2=27+6-32=1. a(4)=4^4+4!-2*5^3=256+24-250=30.
