 A180189 Number of permutations of [n] having exactly 1 circular succession. A circular succession in a permutation p of [n] is either a pair p(i), p(i+1), where p(i+1)=p(i)+1 or the pair p(n), p(1) if p(1)=p(n)+1. 3

%N Number of permutations of [n] having exactly 1 circular succession. A circular succession in a permutation p of [n] is either a pair p(i), p(i+1), where p(i+1)=p(i)+1 or the pair p(n), p(1) if p(1)=p(n)+1.

%C For example, p=(4,1,2,5,3) has 2 circular successions: (1,2) and (3,4).

%C a(n)=A180188(n,1).

%F a(n)=n(n-1)d(n-2), where d(j)=A000166(j) are the derangement numbers.

%e a(4)=12 because we have 1*243, 142*3, 13*42, 31*24, 3142*, 431*2, 213*4, 4213*, 2*314, 2431*, 42*31, and 3*421 (the circular succession is marked *).

%p d := 1: for n to 51 do d[n] := n*d[n-1]+(-1)^n end do: seq(n*(n-1)*d[n-2], n = 1 .. 22);
