 A111868 The work performed by a function f:{1,...,n} -> {1,...,n} is defined to be work(f) = Sum_{i=1..n} |i - f(i)|; a(n) is equal to sum(work(f)) where the sum is over all functions f:{1,...,n}->{1,...,n}. 1

 OFFSET 1,2 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..300 James East The Work Performed by a Transformation Semigroup, preprint 2005. FORMULA a(n) = n^n*(n^2-1) / 3. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Dec 14 2006 EXAMPLE When n=2 there are 4 maps {1,2}->{1,2}. these are (1 1), (2 2), (1 2), (2 1), where we show the map f:{1,2}->{1,2} as (f(1) f(2)). Adding up the work performed by these maps (from left to right as arranged above) gives a(2)=1+1+0+2=4. MATHEMATICA Table[n^n (n^2-1)/3, {n, 20}] (* Harvey P.
