Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

A wheel graph is a graph with n+1 vertices (n>=3) formed by connecting a single vertex to all vertices of an n-cycle. a(n) is the number of labeled wheel graphs. - Geoffrey Critzer, Feb 02 2014

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=3..23.

FORMULA

a(n) = sum_{j=0..n} (-1)^(n-j)*binomial(n,j)*(j+1)^(n+1)/(n+1). [Vladimir Kruchinin, Jun 01 2013]

D-finite with recurrence -n*a(n) +(n-1)*(n+1)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 01 2022

EXAMPLE

For n >= 1, the sequence is 1, 3/2, 4, 15, 72, 420, 2880, 22680, 201600, 1995840, ...
