A242530 Number of cyclic arrangements of S={1,2,...,2n} such that the binary expansions of any two neighbors differ by one bit. 16

%T 7852128780

%N Number of cyclic arrangements of S={1,2,...,2n} such that the binary expansions of any two neighbors differ by one bit.

%C Here, a(n)=NPC(2n;S;P) is the count of all neighbor-property cycles for a specific set S of 2n elements and a pair-property P. For more details, see the link and A242519.

%C In this case the property P is the Gray condition. The choice of the set S is important; when it is replaced by {0,1,2,...,2n-1}, the sequence changes completely and becomes A236602.
