 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Also the number of ways to assign 2n +1's and 2n -1's to the numbers 1,2,...,4n such that the sum is 0, assuming 1 gets the sign +1. LINKS Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..50 John D. Barrow, Rowing and the Same-Sum Problem Have Their Moments, arXiv:0911.3551 [physics.pop-ph], 2009-2010. EXAMPLE For n = 2 there are 4 solutions to the 8-man rowing problem. For n=1 the unique solution is 1+4 = 2+3. For n=2 there are 4 different solutions: 1+2+7+8 = 3+4+5+6, 1+3+6+8 = 2+4+5+7, 1+4+5+8 = 2+3+6+7, 1+4+6+7 = 2+3+5+8. - Michel Marcus, May 25 2013 MATHEMATICA b[L_List] := b[L] = Module[{nL = Length[L], k = L[[-1]], m = L[[-2]]}, Which[L[[1]] == 0, If[nL == 3, 1, b[L[[2 ;; nL]]]], L[[1]] < 1, 0, True, Sum[If[L[[j]] < m, 0, b[Join[Sort[Table[L[[i]] - If[i == j, m + 1/97, 0], {i, 1, nL - 2}]], {m - 1, k}]]], {j, 1, nL - 2}]]]; A[n_, k_] := If[n==0 || k==0, 1, b[Join[Array[(k (n k + 1)/2 + k/97)&, n], {k n, k}]]/n!]; a[n_] := A[2, 2n]; Array[a, 20] (* Jean-François Alcover, Aug 19 2018, after Alois P.
