A Latin rectangle is called reduced if its first row is [1,2,...,n] (the number of 3 X n reduced Latin rectangles is given in A000186). Therefore a Latin rectangle having exactly n fixed points in the first two rows may be called "semireduced". Thus if A1(i), A2(i), i=1,...,n, are the first two rows, then, for every i, either A1(i)=i or A2(i)=i.

Let F_n = A087981(n) = n! * Sum_{2*k_2+...+n*k_n=n, k_i>=0} Product_{i=2..n} 2^k_i/(k_i!*i^k_i). Then a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} binomial(n,k) * F_k * F_(n-k) * u_(n-2*k), where u(n) = A000179(n). - Vladimir Shevelev, Mar 30 2016
