 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS For n >= 2, a(n) is the number of permutations p on the set [n] with the properties that abs(p(i)-i) <= 3 for all i, p(j) <= 2+j for j = 1,2, and p(4) >= 2. For n >= 2, a(n) is also the permanent of the n X n matrix that has ones on its diagonal, ones on its three superdiagonals (with the exception of a zero in the (1,4)-entry), ones on its three subdiagonals (with the exception of zeros in the (4,1) and (5,2)-entries), and is zero elsewhere. This is row 6 of Kløve's Table 3. LINKS Nathaniel Johnston, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..89 Torleiv Kløve, Spheres of Permutations under the Infinity Norm - Permutations with limited displacement.
