This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



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.

a(n) is the number of permutations on [n] that avoid the mixed consecutive/scattered pattern 1-23-4 (also number that avoid 4-32-1).

From David Callan, Jul 25 2008: (Start)

a(n) appears to also count vertical-marked parallelogram polyominoes of perimeter 2n+2; vertical-marked means that for each vertical line that splits the polyomino into two nonempty polyominoes one of the unit segments on the common boundary is marked.





For example, the polyomino above, with n=5, has two such vertical lines, the left line giving only one choice for marking and the right line giving two choices. (End)

In the recurrence coded in Mathematica below, v[n, a] is the number of permutations on [n] that avoid the 3-letter pattern 1-23 and start with a; u[n, a, m, k] is the number of 1-23-4-avoiding permutations on [n] that start with a, have n in position k and for which m is the minimum of the first k-1 entries. In the last sum, j is the number of entries lying strictly between a and n both in value and position.

From Gary W. Adamson, Jul 08 2011: (Start)

a(n) = the upper left term in M^n, M = the production matrix:

1, 1

1, 2, 1

1, 2, 3, 1

1, 2, 3, 4, 1

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1



G.f.: 1+x/(U(0)-x)  where U(k)= 1 - x*k - x/U(k+1) ; (continued fraction, 1-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 10 2012


12534 contains a scattered 1-2-3-4 pattern (1234 itself) but not a 1-23-4 because the 2 and 3 are not adjacent in the permutation.
