(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A245567 Number of antichain covers of a labeled n-set such that for every two distinct elements in the n-set, there is a set in the antichain cover containing one of the elements but not the other. 10
2, 1, 1, 5, 76, 5993, 7689745, 2414465044600, 56130437141763247212112 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



This is the number of antichain covers such that the induced partition contains only singletons. The induced partition of {{1,2},{2,3},{1,3},{3,4}} is {{1},{2},{3},{4}}, while the induced partition of {{1,2,3},{2,3,4}} is {{1},{2,3},{4}}.

This sequence is related to A006126. See 1st formula.

The sequence is also related to Dedekind numbers through Stirling numbers of the second kind. See 2nd formula.

Sets of subsets of the described type are said to be T_0. - Gus Wiseman, Aug 14 2019


Table of n, a(n) for n=0..8.

A000372(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} S(n+1,k+1)*a(k).

a(n) = A006126(n) - Sum_{k=1..n-1} S(n,k)*a(k).

Were n > 0 and S(n,k) is the number of ways to partition a set of n elements into k nonempty subsets.

Inverse binomial transform of A326950, if we assume a(0) = 1. - Gus Wiseman, Aug 14 2019


For n = 0, a(0) = 2 by the antisets {}, {{}}.

For n = 1, a(1) = 1 by the antiset {{1}}.

For n = 2, a(2) = 1 by the antiset {{1},{2}}.

For n = 3, a(3) = 5 by the antisets {{1},{2},{3}}, {{1,2},{1,3}}, {{1,2},{2,3}}, {{1,3},{2,3}}, {{1,2},{1,3},{2,3}}.
