a(n) = A000041(n) + A000009(n) - 1  where A000041 is the partition numbers and A000009 is the number of partitions into distinct parts.

From Gus Wiseman, Oct 14 2020: (Start)

Also the number of compositions of n that are either strictly increasing or weakly decreasing. For example, the a(1) = 1 through a(6) = 14 compositions are:

  (1)  (2)   (3)    (4)     (5)      (6)

       (11)  (12)   (13)    (14)     (15)

             (21)   (22)    (23)     (24)

             (111)  (31)    (32)     (33)

                    (211)   (41)     (42)

                    (1111)  (221)    (51)

                            (311)    (123)

                            (2111)   (222)

                            (11111)  (321)

                                     (411)

                                     (2211)

                                     (3111)

                                     (21111)

                                     (111111)

A007997 counts only compositions of length 3.

A329398 appears to be the weakly increasing version.

A333147 is the strictly decreasing version.

A333255 union A114994 ranks these compositions using standard compositions (A066099).

A337482 counts the complement.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..50.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 6 because the 6 classes can be represented by: 4, 3+1, 1+3, 2+2, 2+1+1, 1+1+1+1.

MATHEMATICA

nn=50; p=CoefficientList[Series[Product[1/(1-x^i), {i, 1, nn}], {x, 0, nn}], x]; d= CoefficientList[Series[Sum[Product[x^i/(1-x^i), {i, 1, k}], {k, 0, nn}], {x, 0, nn}], x]; p+d-1
