%N a(n) = A002527(n+1) - A002527(n) - A002526(n).

%C For n >= 2, a(n) is the number of permutations p on the set [n] with the properties that abs(p(i)-i) <= 3 for all i and p(j) <= 2+j for j = 1,2.

%C For n >= 2, a(n) is also the permanent of the n X n matrix that has ones on its diagonal, ones on its three superdiagonals, ones on its three subdiagonals (with the exception of zeros in the (4,1) and (5,2)-entries), and is zero elsewhere.

%C This is row 3 of Kløve's Table 3.
