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.

A285996 Triangle read by rows, 1<=k<=n, T(n,k) = number of arrangements of n circles in the affine plane having k separated islands. 3
1, 2, 1, 11, 2, 1, 156, 14, 2, 1 (list; table; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Consider the rules for the arrangements of n circles described in A250001.

Note that T(4,1) = 156 includes the arrangement of 4 circles in which there is a little circle that is surrounded by the union of three solid circles, because the little circle is an inland island, or lake island, which does not count. So there is only one separated island. Hence T(4,2) = 14 does not include the mentioned arrangement.

Question: is 1 together with the first column of the triangle the same as A275923?


Table of n, a(n) for n=1..10.


Triangle begins:


2,   1;

11,  2,  1;

156, 14, 2, 1;


Another version of A252158.

Row sums give A250001, n >= 1.

Right border gives A000012.

Cf. A249752, A275923.

Sequence in context: A309497 A281350 A252158 * A191618 A306547 A143888

Adjacent sequences:  A285993 A285994 A285995 * A285997 A285998 A285999
