COMMENTS

The number of arrangements of 1,2,...,n*n in an n X n matrix such that each row is increasing. - Ahmed Fares (ahmedfares(AT)my-deja.com), Jul 12 2001

a(n) == 0 mod (n!). In fact (n^2)! == 0 mod (n!)^n by elementary combinatorics, a better result is (n^2)! == 0 ((mod(n!)^(n+1)). - Amarnath Murthy, Jul 13 2005

a(n) is also the number of lattice paths from {n}^n to {0}^n using steps that decrement one component by 1. a(2) = 6: [(2,2), (1,2), (0,2), (0,1), (0,0)], [(2,2), (1,2), (1,1), (0,1), (0,0)], [(2,2), (1,2), (1,1), (1,0), (0,0)], [(2,2), (2,1), (1,1), (0,1), (0,0)], [(2,2), (2,1), (1,1), (1,0), (0,0)], [(2,2), (2,1), (2,0), (1,0), (0,0)]. - Alois P. Heinz, May 06 2013

Given n^2 distinguishable balls and n distinguishable urns, a(n) = the number of ways to place n balls in the i-th urn for all 1 <= i <= n, where n = n_1 + n_2 + ... + n_n. - Ross La Haye, Dec 28 2013

FORMULA

Using a higher order version of Stirling's formula (the "standard" formula appears in A000142) we have the asymptotic expression: a(n) ~ sqrt(2*Pi) * e^(-1/12) * n^(n^2 - n/2 + 1) / (2*Pi)^(n/2). - Dan Fux (dan.fux(AT)OpenGaia.com or danfux(AT)OpenGaia.com), Apr 13 2001
