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.

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A074734 T(n,k)= count of differences between standard sort and 'modular sort' over all subsets of k integers chosen from n. Modular Sort considers the integers 1..n to lie on a circle and rotates them to exclude the largest interval. 0

COMMENTS

for modulo 24, imagine you need to be present at work at 23:00 and at 04:00, then you only have to be there for 5 hours, not 19 (=23-4).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..78.

EXAMPLE

T(4,3)=2 because modsort mod 4 on {{1,2,3},{1,2,4},{1,3,4},{2,3,4}} produces {{1,2,3},{4,1,2},{3,4,1},{2,3,4}} with 2 changes. modsort on {1,2,4} gives {4,1,2} since it has intervals (4 to 1 gives 1) and (1 to 2 gives 1), while (2 to 4 gives 2) is excluded.

MATHEMATICA

modsort[li_List, n_] := Block[{temp}, RotateRight[Sort[li], Length[li]-Position[temp=Mod[ #2-#1, n, 0]& @@@ Partition[Sort[li], 2, 1, {1, 1}], Max[temp]][[ -1, 1]] ]]; << DiscreteMath`Combinatorica`; Table[Count[modsort[ #, n]& /@ KSubsets[Range[n], k], _?(!OrderedQ[ # ]&)], {n, 16}, {k, n}]
