A134988 Number of formal expressions obtained by applying iterated binary brackets to n indexed symbols x_1, ..., x_n such that: 1) each symbol appears exactly once; 2) the smallest index inside a bracket appears on the left hand side and the largest index appears on the right hand side; 3) the outer bracket is the only bracket such that its set of indices is a sequence of consecutive integers. 0

COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of generators in arity n of the operad Lie, when considered as a free non-symmetric operad.

FORMULA

a(2) = 1, a(n) = Sum_{k=2..n-2}((k+1)*a(k+1)+a(k))*a(n-k), n>2;

G.f.: x - series_reversion(x*F(x)); where F(x) is the g.f. of the factorials (A000142).

a(n) = (1/e)*(1-3/n-5/(2n^2)+O(1/n^3)).

PROG

(PARI)

N=66;  x='x+O('x^N);

F = sum(n=0, N, x^n*n!);

gf= x - serreverse(x*F);  Vec(Ser(gf))
