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

Row sums of A128208.

Essentially the same as A052953. - R. J. Mathar, Jun 14 2008

Let I=I_n be the n X n identity matrix and P=P_n be the incidence matrix of the cycle (1,2,3,...,n). Then, for n >= 1, a(n+1) is the number of different representations of matrix P^(-1)+I+P by sum of permutation matrices. - Vladimir Shevelev, Apr 12 2010

a(n) is the rank of Fibonacci(n+2) in row n of A049456 (regarded as an irregular triangle read by rows). - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 23 2016
