FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(2*n-8)/sqrt(Pi*n)*Q*(1+O(n^{-1})), where Q is a digital search tree constant, Q = 0.2887880951... (see A048651). - corrected by Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 16 2014

EXAMPLE

a(8)=7 because we have 21345678, 13245678, 12435678, 12354678, 12346578, 12345768, and 12345687.

MAPLE

g := proc(n, k) option remember; if k=0 then return(1) else if (n=1 and k=1) then return(0) else if (k<0 or k>binomial(n, 2)) then return(0) else g(n-1, k)+g(n, k-1)-g(n-1, k-n) end if end if end if end proc; seq(g(j+7, j), j=0..30); # Barbara Haas Margolius, May 31 2001
