COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of permutations of length n avoiding the partially ordered pattern (POP) {1>2, 1>3, 2>4} of length 4. That is, the number of length n permutations having no subsequences of length 4 in which the first element is the largest and the second element is larger than the fourth element. - Sergey Kitaev, Dec 09 2020

FORMULA

G.f. satisfies (2*x^2+8*x-1)*F(x)^4 + (x^3+4*x^2-46*x+5)*F(x)^3 + (3*x^3-21*x^2+94*x-9)*F(x)^2 + (x^3+12*x^2-82*x+7)*F(x) + 3*x^2+26*x-2 = 0. - Jay Pantone, Oct 01 2015

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 21 because there are 24 permutations of length 4, and 3 of them do not avoid 4231, 4312, and 4321.
