The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS In other words, if the smallest cycle in the n-permutation has length k then no other cycle in the permutation has length k. LINKS Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..449 FORMULA E.g.f.: Sum_{k>=1} x^k/k * exp(-Sum_{i=1..k}x^i/i)/(1-x). EXAMPLE a(4) = 14 because we have 14 such permutations of {1,2,3,4} shown in cycle notation: {{1}, {3,4,2}}, {{1}, {4,3,2}}, {{2,3,1}, {4}}, {{2,3,4,1}}, {{2,4,3,1}}, {{2,4,1}, {3}}, {{3,2,1}, {4}}, {{3,4,2,1}}, {{3,4,1}, {2}}, {{3,2,4,1}}, {{4,3,2,1}}, {{4,2,1}, {3}}, {{4,3,1}, {2}}, {{4,2,3,1}}.
