 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS A length-t rise in a permutation a() is a list of t+1 consecutive values a(i), ..., a(i+t) for which a(i) < a(i+1) < ... < a(i+t), and similarly for a descent. By "maximal" we mean it can't be increased in length on either side. For example, 3 4 5 2 1 6 7 8 has a rise of length 2 (3,4,5), followed by a descent of length 2 (5,2,1), followed by a rise of length 3 (1,6,7,8). LINKS Alois P.
