 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS For n >= 2, a(n) is the number of permutations p on the set [n] with the properties that abs(p(i)-i) <= 3 for all i, p(j) <= 1+j for j=1,2, and p(4) >= 2. For n >= 2, a(n) is also the permanent of the n X n matrix that has ones on its diagonal, ones on its three superdiagonals (with the exception of a zero in the (1,4)-entry), ones on its three subdiagonals (with the exception of zeros in the (3,1), (4,1), (4,2), and (5,2)-entries), and is zero elsewhere.
