 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS By the structure theorem for compact Lie groups, every compact connected Lie group is a finite central quotient of a product of copies of the circle group U(1) and compact simple Lie groups which are all known due to Cartan's classification. This sequence counts only those which are direct products of such groups. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..65. FORMULA G.f.: 1/((1-x)*(1-x^3)^2*(1-x^8)^2*(1-x^10)^2*(1-x^14)*...) = (1/(1-x)) * Product_{k>=0} (1-x^k)^A178176(k) with (1-x^k)^0 taken to be 1. EXAMPLE For n=0, the trivial group is the only such group. For n=8, the 8 Lie groups are U(1)^8, U(1)^5 x SU(2), U(1)^5 x SO(3), U(1)^2 x SU(2)^2, U(1)^2 x SU(2) x SO(3), U(1)^2 x SO(3)^2, SU(3) and SU(3)/3. CROSSREFS See also A178176 for enumeration of the simple factors giving these counts.
