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

 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(1) <= 2, p(2) <= 4, 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 (3,1), (4,1), and (5,2)-entries), and is zero elsewhere. This is row 11 of Kløve's Table 3.
