%N Number of isomorphism classes of linking pairings on finite Abelian 2-groups of fixed order 2^n.

%C A linking pairing on a finite Abelian group G is a nonsingular symmetric bilinear form G x G --> Q/Z.

%C The combinatorics of this sequence are surprisingly complicated. The corresponding case when p is odd is easier and is now understood. The sequence is a combinatorial refinement of partitions of integers.

%e a(2) = 4 because there are 4 nonequivalent linking pairings on finite Abelian groups of order 2^2 = 4: there are two nonequivalent cyclic pairings on Z/4, one direct product of two cyclic pairings on Z/2 and one noncyclic pairing on Z/2 x Z/2.
