COMMENTS
A mating graph is one in which no two vertices have identical adjacencies with the other vertices. - Ronald C. Read and Vladeta Jovovic, Feb 10 2003
Also number of (n-1)-node labeled mating graphs allowing loops and without isolated nodes. - Vladeta Jovovic, Mar 08 2008

FORMULA
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} Stirling1(n, k)*2^binomial(k, 2). - Ronald C. Read and Vladeta Jovovic, Feb 10 2003
E.g.f.: Sum_{n>=0} 2^(n(n-1)/2)*log(1+x)^n/n!. - Paul D. Hanna, May 20 2009
EXAMPLE
Consider the square (cycle of length 4) on vertices 1, 2, 3 and 4 in that order. Join a fifth vertex (5) to vertices 1, 3 and 4. The resulting graph is not a mating graph since vertices 1 and 3 both have the set {2, 4, 5} as neighbors. If we delete the edge (1,5) then the resulting graph is a mating graph: the neighborhood sets for vertices 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 are respectively {2,4}, {1,3}, {2,4,5}, {1,3,5} and {3,4} - all different.
