A269799 Number of vertices of the fractional perfect matching polytope for the complete graph on n vertices. 0
0, 1, 1, 3, 22, 25, 717, 1057, 39196, 98829 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The fractional perfect matching polytope of a graph is the set of nonnegative edge weights such that the sum of the weights of the edges incident with any given vertex equals 1.

Sequence up to n=10 computed with PORTA (see links) by Pontus von Brömssen in December 2010.

a(n) equals the number of facets of the polytope P_n defined in Eickmeyer and Yoshida (2008), at least up to n=10.

For n=4 the fractional perfect matching polytope is the convex hull of the 3 perfect matchings of K_4, so a(4)=3. For n=6, in addition to the 15 perfect matchings of K_6, the 10 pairs of disjoint triangles with edge weights 1/2 are vertices of the polytope, so a(6)=25.
