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 0,3 COMMENTS Compare to A007840(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} |Stirling1(n, k)|*k!, which equals the number of factorizations of permutations of n letters into ordered cycles. For n > 1, a(n) is equal to the permanent of the (n-1) X (n-1) matrix in which the (i, j)-entry is equal to delta(i, j) + i, letting delta denote the Kronecker delta function, as illustrated in the below example. - John M. Campbell, Jan 21 2018 LINKS FORMULA a(n) ~ ((n-1)!)^2. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 30 2014 EXAMPLE For example, the (5-1) X (5-1) matrix of the form indicated above is equal to [2 1 1 1] [2 3 2 2] [3 3 4 3] [4 4 4 5] and the permanent of the above matrix is equal to 957 = a(5). - John M.
