This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2017 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS a(n) ~ n!*exp(-3/4)/sqrt(Pi*n). a(n) is the number of ways of covering K_n with cycles of length >= 3. Also number of 'frames' on n lines: given n lines in general position (none parallel and no three concurrent), a frame is a subset of n of the e C(n,2) points of intersection such that no three points are on the same line. - Mitch Harris, Jul 06 2006 REFERENCES Miklos Bona, Handbook of Enumerative Combinatorics, CRC Press, 2015, p. 410-411.
