Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A212319 The number of abstract groups with minimal permutation representations of degree n. 0

COMMENTS

a(n) can be derived by setting a(1)=1 and then taking the differences between the consecutive elements of A174511. This is due to the fact that if an abstract group can be represented as a permutation group on n points, then it can also be represented by a permutation group of degree n+1, simply by including a fixed point. In other words, the sum of the first n terms give you the number of isomorphism classes of subgroups of the symmetric group of degree n.

FORMULA

a(1)=1, a(n) = A174511(n) - A174511(n-1), n>1.

EXAMPLE

a(1)=1, since only the trivial group 1 can be represented as permutations of a single point. a(2)=1 because Z_2,1 can both be realized by permutations of two points but for 1 this representation is not minimal. a(3)=2 with Z_3 and S_3 appearing for the first time.
