This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Strategic pile is as defined in A267323.

The formula given below is a specific instance of the formula that will appear in "Quantifying CDS Sortability of Permutations Using Strategic Piles", see link.

a(n) = (n-6)!*(120*binomial(n-7,5) + 576*binomial(n-7,4) + 1116*binomial(n-7,3) + 1080*binomial(n-7,2) + 540*binomial(n-7,1)) for n>7.


The permutation P = [3,5,1,8,6,2,7,4] has strategic pile of size 6. This can be found by the following cycle composition: (0,4,7,2,6,8,1,5,3)(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)=(0,5,8,4,3,7,1,6,2). Therefore, the strategic pile of P is {4,3,7,1,6,2}.


Cf. A267323 (size 3), A267324 (size 4), A267391 (size 5).
