LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..9.

FORMULA

a(n)=Product[a(i)-a(j)], j<i<=n; product of C[n, 2] positive differences provided by the n marks of ruler.

EXAMPLE

n=6:the ruler={1,2,5,11,13,18}, the C[6,2]=15 possible differences={17,16,13,7,5,12,11,8,2,10,9,6,4,3,1}; the product = a(6)=1693749657600.

MATHEMATICA

t={marks of ruler}; lt=Length[t] b[x_] := Part[t, x] bd[x_] := Reverse[b[x]-Table[b[j], {j, 1, x-1}]] pb[x_] := Apply[Times, bd[x]] Table[{j, bd[j], pb[j]}, {j, 1, lt}]; vm=Table[Apply[Times, Table[pb[u], {u, 1, k}]], {k, 1, lt}]; Part[vm, lt]
