 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Number of states in the planning domain FERRY, when n-3 cars are at one of two shores while the (n-2)nd car may be on the ferry or at one of the shores. If the ferry could board any number of cars (instead of only one), the number of states would form the Pisot sequence P(2,6) (A008776). In addition, if k shores existed, the sequence would form the Pisot sequence P(k,k(k+1)). This corresponds to the BRIEFCASE planning domain. a(i) is the number of occurrences of the number 1 in all palindromic compositions of n = 2*(i+1). - Silvia Heubach (sheubac(AT)calstatela.edu), Jan 10 2003. E.g., there are 5 palindromic compositions of 6, namely 111111 11211 2112 1221 141, containing a total of 16 1's. Number of occurrences of 00's in all circular binary words of length n. Example: a(3)=6 because in the circular binary words 000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110 and 111 we have a total of 3+1+1+0+1+0+0+0=6 occurrences of 00. a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} k*A119458(n,k). - Emeric Deutsch, May 20 2006 a(n) is the number of permutations on [n] for which the entries of each left factor form a circular subinterval of [n]. A subset I of [n] forms a circular subinterval of [n] if it is an ordinary interval [a,b] or has the form [1,a]-union-[b,n] for 1 <= a < b <= n. For example, (5,4,2) is a left factor of the permutation (5,4,2,1,3) which does not form a circular subinterval of  and a(4)=16 counts all 24 permutations of  except the eight whose first two entries are 1,3 (in either order) or 2,4. - David Callan, Mar 30 2007 a(n) is the total number of runs in all Boolean (n-1)-strings. For example, the 8 Boolean 3-strings, 000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110, 111 have 1, 2, 3, 2, 2, 3, 2, 1 runs respectively. - David Callan, Jul 22 2008 From Gary W. Adamson, Jul 31 2010: (Start) Starting with "1" = (1, 2, 4, 8, ...) convolved with (1, 0, 2, 4, 8, ...). Example: a(6) = 96 = (32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1) dot (1, 0, 2, 4, 8, 16) = (32 + 0 + 16 + 16 + 16, + 16) = 32 + 4*16 (End) An elephant sequence, see A175654. For the corner squares 24 A vectors, with decimal values between 27 and 432, lead to this sequence (without the leading 0). For the central square these vectors lead to the companion sequence A087447 (without the first leading 1). - Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 15 2010 Starting with 1 = (1, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, ...) convolved with (1, 1, 3, 7, 15, 31, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Oct 26 2010 a(n) is the number of ways to draw simple polygonal chains for n vertices lying on a circle. - Anton Zakharov, Dec 31 2016 Also the number of edges, maximal cliques, and maximum cliques in the n-folded cube graph for n > 3. - Eric W. Weisstein, Dec 01 2017 and Mar 21 2018 Number of pairs of compositions of n corresponding to a seaweed algebra of index n-2 for n > 2. - Nick Mayers, Jun 25 2018 Starting with 1, 2, 6, 16, ..., number of permutations of length n>0 avoiding the partially ordered pattern (POP) {1>2, 1>3} of length 4. That is, number of length n permutations having no subsequences of length 4 in which the first element is larger than the second and third elements. - Sergey Kitaev, Dec 08 2020 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 O.
