Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

There are n cities located on the vertices of a convex n-gon and 2 types of communication lines available. Any city can be connected to any other by only one communication line (that can be of any type). A network exists if at least 2 cities are connected by a communication line. The sequence shows how many different networks a(n) can be built. In general, if the number of communication-line types is c, then a(n) = (c+1)^(n(n+1)/2)-1. Thus other sequences of this type can be generated.

FORMULA

a(n) = (3^A000217) - 1.

a(n) = A047656(n+1) - 1. - Omar E. Pol, Feb 18 2012

EXAMPLE

In the case of 2 different types of communication lines and 4 cities, the number of different networks (connecting at least 2 cities) is 728.
