Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

These are thunderstorm graphs.  Their connected components are a single cycle (clouds), a path (lightning bolts) or an isolated vertex (raindrops). - Geoffrey Critzer, May 11 2011

FORMULA

Binomial transform of A000986. E.g.f.: (1-x)^(-1/2)*exp(-x^2/4 + x/((2*(1-x)))). - Vladeta Jovovic, May 20 2008

a(n) = (2*n-1)*a(n-1) - (n-1)^2*a(n-2) + (n-2)*(n-1)*a(n-3) - (n-3)*(n-2)*(n-1)/2*a(n-4). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 10 2013

a(n) ~ n^n*exp(sqrt(2*n)-1/2-n)/sqrt(2) * (1+19/(24*sqrt(2*n))). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 10 2013

MATHEMATICA
