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").

A259114 Number of rooted binary unordered tanglegrams of size n. 6
1, 1, 2, 10, 69, 807, 13048, 269221, 6660455, 191411477, 6257905519, 229312906604, 9309547057292, 414803750101863 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Binary tanglegrams are pairs of bifurcating (degree 3 internal node) trees with a bijection between the leaves of the trees. Two tanglegrams are isomorphic if there is an isomorphism between the trees that preserves the bijection. Rooted means that the tanglegram is composed of rooted trees, and unordered means that two tanglegrams that differ by exchanging the trees and inverting the bijection are considered identical.
