%N Solution to the Dancing School Problem with 7 girls and n+7 boys: f(7,n).

%C f(g,h) = per(B), the permanent of the (0,1)-matrix B of size g X g+h with b(i,j)=1 if and only if i <= j <= i+h. See A079908 for more information.

%C For fixed g, f(g,n) is polynomial in n for n >= g-2. See reference.
