%N Number of symmetric reduced rearrangement maps.

%C a(n) is the number of reduced rearrangement maps on n blocks. A rearrangement map is a signed permutation, e.g., +2 -1 -3. If the permutation contains (i)(i+1) or -(i+1)-(i) for any i, then it is not reduced. The map a is symmetric if a=a^(AI) and a^A = a^I where A and I are the rotation involutions.

%e For n=0 the a(0)=1 solution is { ∅ }

%e For n=1 the a(1)=2 solutions are { +1, -1 }

%e For n=2 the a(2)=2 solutions are { +2+1, -1-2 }
