a(n) is the total size of all the image sets of all functions from [n] to [n]. I.e., a(n) is the sum of the cardinalities of every image set of every function whose domain and codomain is {1,2,...,n}.

COMMENTS

a(n)/n^n is the expected value for the cardinality of the image set of a function that takes [n] to [n].
a(n)/n^(n+1) is the probability that any particular element of [n] will be in the range of a function f : [n] to [n].

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n^n  (n1)^n).
a(n) = Sum_{i=1..n} S(n,i)*i!*binomial(n,i)*i where S(n,i) is the Stirling number of the second kind.
a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} A090657(n,k)*k.
Limit_{n>infinity} a(n)/n^(n+1) = (e1)/e.  Thomas Dybdahl Ahle, Apr 24 2011


EXAMPLE

a(2) = 6 because the image sets of the functions from [2] to [2] are {1},{2},{1,2},{1,2}.
