The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

%N Number of tangled chains of length k=5.

%C Tangled chains are ordered lists of k rooted binary trees with n leaves and a matching between each leaf from the i-th tree with a unique leaf from the (i+1)-st tree up to isomorphism on the binary trees. This sequence fixes k=5, and n = 1,2,3,...

%F t(n) = Sum_{b=(b(1),...,b(t))} Product_{i=2..t} (2(b(i)+...+b(t))-1)^5)/z(b) where the sum is over all binary partitions of n and z(b) is the size of the stabilizer of a permutation of cycle type b under conjugation.
