An atomic species is one that is not the product of smaller species. - Christian G. Bower, Feb 23 2006

A permutation group is connected if it is not the direct product of smaller permutation groups. - Christian G. Bower, Feb 23 2006

Inverse Euler transform of A000638. Define b(n), c(n), d(): b(1)=d(1)=0. b(k)=A005227(k), k>1. c(k)=A000638(k), k>0. d(k)=a(k), k>1. d is Dirichlet convolution of b and c. - Christian G. Bower, Feb 23 2006
