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.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A095912 Variant of the pay-phone sequence A095236. Here a slot at the end of the row is always preferred over a slot sandwiched immediately between two used slots. 2

EXAMPLE

Example: there are 5 payphones. First arrival may choose any; he selects phone #2. Next arrival must take the furthest away, #5. Next arrival must take either of #3 or #4 (since both have a neighbor on one side and a vacant slot on the other); he chooses #3. Next arrival must take #1 (because end slots are preferred over "sandwiched" slots), leaving #4 for the last arrival. The permutation (25314) is one of a(5)=10 that satisfy the requirements.
