COMMENTS

a(n) is the sum over all elements of Alt_n of the size of their conjugacy class. Each conjugacy class is thus counted as many times as its size, giving a sum of squares.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..18.

EXAMPLE

For n=5, a(5) = 1 + 12^2 + 12^2 + 15^2 + 20^2 = 914.

The class equation of A_5 is  1 + 12 + 12 + 15 + 20  = 60 = 5!/2
