 A003043 Number of Hamiltonian paths (or Gray codes) on n-cube with a marked starting node. (Formerly M2112) 6
 1, 2, 18, 5712, 5859364320 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)
 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS More precisely, this is the number of ways of making a list of the 2^n nodes of the n-cube, with a distinguished starting position and a direction, such that each node is adjacent to the previous one. The final node may or may not be adjacent to the first. Finally, divide by 2^n since the starting node really doesn't matter. Also, the number of strings s of length 2^n - 1 over the alphabet {1,2,...,n} with the property that every contiguous subblock has some letter that appears an odd number of times. REFERENCES M.
