The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A108798 Number of nonisomorphic systems enumerated by A102894; that is, the number of inequivalent closure operators in which the empty set is closed. Also, the number of union-closed sets with n elements that contain the universe and the empty set. 15

a(n) = A108800(n)/2.


From Gus Wiseman, Aug 02 2019: (Start)

Non-isomorphic representatives of the a(0) = 1 through a(3) = 14 union-closed sets of sets:

{} {}{1} {}{12} {}{123}

{}{2}{12} {}{3}{123}

{}{1}{2}{12} {}{23}{123}














The labeled version is A102894.
