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.

COMMENTS

This is a permutation of natural numbers induced when "noncrossing handshakes", i.e., Stanley's interpretation (n), "n nonintersecting chords joining 2n points on the circumference of a circle", are rotated.

The same permutation is induced when the root position of plane trees (Stanley's interpretation (e)) is successively changed around the vertices.

For a good illustration how the rotation of the root vertex works, please see the Figure 6, "Rotation of an ordered rooted tree" in Torsten Mütze's paper (on page 24 in 20 May 2014 revision).

For yet another application of this permutation, please see the attached notes for A085197.

By "recursivizing" either the left or right hand side argument of A085201 in the formula, one ends either with A057161 or A057503. By "recursivizing" the both sides, one ends with A057505. - Antti Karttunen, Jun 06 2014

FORMULA

a(0) = 0, and for n>=1, a(n) = A085201(A072771(n), A057548(A072772(n))). [This formula reflects directly the given non-destructive Lisp/Scheme function: A085201 is a 2-ary function corresponding to 'append', A072771 and A072772 correspond to 'car' and 'cdr' (known also as first/rest or head/tail in some dialects), and A057548 corresponds to unary form of function 'list'].

As a composition of related permutations:

a(n) = A057509(A069770(n)).

a(n) = A057163(A069773(A057163(n))).

Invariance-identities:

A129599(a(n)) = A129599(n) holds for all n.

MAPLE

car := proc(a) if 0 = nops(a) then ([]) else (op(1, a)): fi: end: # The name is from Lisp, takes the first element (head) of the list.

PROG

(Scheme functions implementing this automorphism on S-expressions, "constructive" and "destructive" variants):

(define (*A057501 s) (cond ((null? s) (list)) (else (append (car s) (list (cdr s))))))

(define (*A057501! s) (cond ((pair? s) (*A074680! s) (*A057501! (cdr s)))) s)

;; A version working directly on nonnegative integers (definec is a memoization macro from Antti Karttunen's IntSeq-library):

(definec (A057501 n) (if (zero? n) n (A085201bi (A072771 n) (A057548 (A072772 n))))) ;; A085201bi, see: A085201.

CROSSREFS

Inverse: A057502.

Also, a "SPINE"-transform of A074680, and thus occurs as row 17 of A122203. (Also as row 65167 of A130403.)

Successive powers of this permutation, a^2(n) - a^6(n): A082315, A082317, A082319, A082321, A082323.
