FORMULA

a(n) = 2*m*m!/(m+1) where m=2n-1.

a(n) = A126074(2n,n). - Alois P. Heinz, Apr 21 2017

a(n) = A293211(2n,n). - Alois P. Heinz, Oct 11 2017

EXAMPLE

For n=2, there are 9 permutations of [4] = { 1, 2, 3, 4 } which have a cycle of length 2: each of the 4*3/2 = 6 transpositions, plus the 3 different possible products of two transpositions. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 21 2015
