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

The references are about the notion of connectivity spaces (in French, "espaces connectifs"): the sets S are the finite connectivity structures. For example, the set {1, 2, 3} in the above example is the Borromean structure. The computation of a(6) is entirely based on the work of Wim van Dam (cf. A072446).

a(3)=3 because of the 12=3*2^2 subsets: {{1}, {2}, {3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {2, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {1, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {2, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 3}, {2, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}; {{1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {1, 3}, {2, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}.
