COMMENTS

This sequence gives the number of divisors d of S_n such that d < Lambda(n) (where Lambda(n) = the largest order of an element in S_n) for which S_n contains no element of order d. These divisors constitute a set of 'missing' element orders of S_n.
For computational purposes, the smallest divisor d0(n) of n! = S_n for which S_n has no element of order d0(n) is the smallest divisor of n! which is not the least common multiple of an integer partition of n. Thus d0(n) is given by the smallest prime power >= n+1 that is not prime (with the exception of n = 3 and 4, for which d0(n) = 6).

EXAMPLE

For n = 7, we refer to the following table:
Symmetric Group on 7 letters.
# of elements of order 1 > 1
# of elements of order 2 > 231
# of elements of order 3 > 350
# of elements of order 4 > 840
# of elements of order 5 > 504
# of elements of order 6 > 1470
# of elements of order 7 > 720
# of elements of order 8 > 0
# of elements of order 9 > 0
# of elements of order 10 > 504
# of elements of order 12 > 420
(All other divisors of 7! > 0.)
So there are two missing element orders in S_7, whence a(7) = 2.
