This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 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. Other ways to donate

 A145877 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of permutations of [n] for which the shortest cycle length is k (1<=k<=n). 5

 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS Row sums are the factorials (A000142). Sum(T(n,k), k=2..n) = A000166(n) (the derangement numbers). T(n,1) = A002467(n). T(n,n) = (n-1)! (A000142). Sum(k*T(n,k),k=1..n) = A028417(n). For the statistic "length of the longest cycle", see A126074. LINKS Alois P. Heinz, Rows n = 1..141, flattened FORMULA E.g.f. for column k is (1-exp(-x^k/k))*exp( -sum(j=1..k-1, x^j/j ) ) / (1-x). - Vladeta Jovovic EXAMPLE T(4,2)=3 because we have 3412=(13)(24), 2143=(12)(34) and 4321=(14)(23).
