 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS From Emeric Deutsch, Sep 09 2010: (Start) a(n) is the number of isolated entries in all permutations of [n+2]. An entry j of a permutation p is isolated if it is not preceded by j-1 and not followed by j+1. For example, the permutation 23178564 has 2 isolated entries: 1 and 4. a(1)=11 because in 123, 1'3'2', 2'1'3', 231', 3'12, and 3'2'1' we have a total of 11 isolated entries (they are marked). a(n) = Sum_{k>=0} k*A180196(n+2,k).
