The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.

 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS This sequence (a(n)) appears to dominate the sequence (n^{2n-2}) of the number of spanning trees in K_{n,n} for n>1. This shows that the sequence of independent set numbers for the cycle matroid of K_{n,n} is not monotone increasing unlike the complete graph K_{n}. LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..214 N. Eaton, W. Kook and L. Thoma, Monotonicity for complete graphs, preprint, 2004. FORMULA a(n) = 2*(n^2 - n)^(n-1) + (1/2)*Sum_{x=1..(n-1)} Sum_{y=1..(n-1)} b(n, x, y), where b(n, x, y) = binomial(n,x)*binomial(n,y)*x^(y-1)*y^(x-1)*(n-x)^(n-y-1)*(n-y)^(n-x-1). EXAMPLE a(2)=6 because K_{2,2} is C_{4} the cycle of length 4 and there are 6 forests with two components in C_{4}. MATHEMATICA a[n_]:=Sum[Binomial[n, x]*Binomial[n, y]*x^(y-1)*y^(x-1)*(n-x)^(n-y-1)*(n-y)^(n-x-1), {x, 1, n-1}, {y, 1, n-1}]/2 + (2*(n^2-n)^(n-1)); Table[a[n], {n, 2, 10}] (* This will generate a(n) from n=2 to 10. *) CROSSREFS Cf.
