A239118 Number of ballot sequences of length n with exactly 7 fixed points. 2
0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 3, 9, 29, 99, 357, 1351, 5342, 21983, 93823, 414198, 1886424, 8846390, 42628782, 210773592, 1067599984, 5533263752, 29307314408, 158484944416, 874103230896, 4913196556800, 28120097476640, 163770757573776, 969858742317600 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The fixed points are in the first 7 positions.

Also the number of standard Young tableaux with n cells such that the first column contains 1, 2, ..., 7, but not 8.  An alternate definition uses the first row.

a(n) ~ sqrt(2)/11520 * exp(sqrt(n)-n/2-1/4) * n^(n/2) * (1+7/(24*sqrt(n))). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 11 2014

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 1: [1,2,3,4,5,6,7].

a(8) = 1: [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1].

a(9) = 3: [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,1], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,8].

a(10) = 9: [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,1,1], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,1,2], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,1,8], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,1], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,8], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,8,1], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,8,2], [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,8,9].
