COMMENTS

A001372 counts functional patterns from a set with n elements to itself; A000041 (partition function) counts functional patterns from a set with n elements to a disjoint set; this is the general case where the range may overlap the domain but may also include other values.

FORMULA

Euler transform of A002861(n) + A000081(n+1).

a(n) ~ c * d^n / sqrt(n), where d = A051491 = 2.95576528565199497471481752412..., c = 3.435908969217935496995961718... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 10 2014

EXAMPLE

For n=2 there are the following 7 digraphs:

o-+.o-+ o->o-+ o->o o-+.o->o o->o->o o->o o->o

^.|.^.| ...^.| ^..| ^.|..... ....... ...^ ....

+-+.+-+ ...+-+ +--+ +-+..... ....... o--+ o->o
