This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%N Number of labeled rooted trees with n nodes and 2 leaves.

%C a(n+1) is the sum of the zero moments over all permutations of n. E.g., a(4) is [1,2,3].[0,1,2] + [1,3,2].[0,1,2] + [2,1,3].[0,1,2] + [2,3,1].[0,1,2] + [3,1,2].[0,1,2] + [3,2,1].[0,1,2] = 8 + 7 + 7 + 5 + 5 + 4 = 36. - _Jon Perry_, Feb 20 2004

%C a(n) is the number of pairs of elements (p(i),p(j)) in an n-permutation such that i > j and p(i) < p(j) where j is not equal to i-1. Loosely speaking, we could say: the number of inversions that are not descents. A055303 + A001286 = A001809. For example, a(3)=3 from the permutations (given in one line notation): (2,3,1), (3,1,2), (3,2,1) we have the pairs (1,2), (2,3) and (1,3) respectively. - _Geoffrey Critzer_, Jan 06 2013
