Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

For n>=2, a(n) is equal to the number of functions f:{1,2,...,n}->{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} such that for fixed, different x_1, x_2 in {1,2,...,n} and fixed y_1, y_2 in {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} we have f(x_1)<>y_1 and f(x_2)<> y_2. - Milan Janjic, Apr 19 2007

a(n) is the number of generalized compositions of n when there are 8*i-1 different types of i, (i=1,2,...). - Milan Janjic, Aug 26 2010
