 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Number of {12,12*,21}-avoiding signed permutations in the hyperoctahedral group. Let M be the n X n matrix with M( i, i ) = i+1, other entries = 1. Then a(n) = det(M); example: a(3) = 17 = det([2, 1, 1; 1, 3, 1; 1, 1, 4]). - Philippe Deléham, Jun 13 2005. With offset 1: number of permutations of the n-set into at most two cycles. - Joerg Arndt, Jun 22 2009 A ball goes with probability 1/(k+1) from place k to a place j with j=0..k; a(n)/n! is the average number of steps from place n to place 0. - Paul Weisenhorn, Jun 03 2010 a(n) is a multiple of A025527(n). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 16 2012 LINKS Nathaniel Johnston, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..250 Sergey Kitaev and Jeffrey Remmel, Simple marked mesh patterns, arXiv preprint arXiv:1201.1323 [math.CO], 2012.

FORMULA E.g.f.: A(x) = (1-x)^-1 * (1 - log(1-x)). a(n+1) = (n+1)*a(n) + n!. - Jon Perry, Sep 26 2004 a(n) = A000254(n) + n!. - Mark van Hoeij, Jul 06 2010 G.f.: 1+x = Sum_{n>=0} a(n) * x^n / Product_{k=1..n+1} (1 + k*x). - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 01 2012 a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (k+1)*|s(n,k)|, where s(n,k) are Stirling numbers of the first kind (A008275). - Peter Luschny, Oct 16 2012 Conjecture: a(n) +(-2*n+1)*a(n-1) +(n-1)^2*a(n-2)=0. - R.
