COMMENTS

In other words, a(n) is the number of graphic sequences of length n, where a graphic sequence is a sequence of numbers which can be the degree sequence of some graph.
In the article by A. Iványi, G. Gombos, L. Lucz, and T. Matuszka, "Parallel enumeration of degree sequences of simple graphs II", in Table 4 on page 260 the values a(30) = 7898574056034638 and a(31) = 30873429530206738 are incorrect due to the incorrect Gz(30) = 5876236938019300 and Gz(31) = 22974847474172100.

FORMULA

G.f. = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 4*x^3 + 11*x^4 + 31*x^5 + 102*x^6 + 342*x^7 + 1213*x^8 + ...


EXAMPLE

For n = 3, there are 4 different graphic sequences possible: 0 0 0; 1 1 0; 2 1 1; 2 2 2.  Daan van Berkel (daan.v.berkel.1980(AT)gmail.com), Jun 25 2010
From Gus Wiseman, Dec 31 2020: (Start)
The a(0) = 1 through a(4) = 11 sorted degree sequences:
() (0) (0,0) (0,0,0) (0,0,0,0)
(1,1) (0,1,1) (0,0,1,1)
(1,1,2) (0,1,1,2)
(2,2,2) (0,2,2,2)
(1,1,1,1)
(1,1,1,3)
(1,1,2,2)
(1,2,2,3)
(2,2,2,2)
(2,2,3,3)
(3,3,3,3)
For example, the graph {{2,3},{2,4}} has degrees (0,2,1,1), so (0,1,1,2) is counted under a(4).
