The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

A288568 Number of non-isomorphic connected arrangements of n pseudo-circles on a sphere, in the sense that the union of the pseudo-circles is a connected set, reduced for mirror symmetry. 23
1, 1, 1, 3, 21, 984, 609423 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



These counts have been reduced for mirror symmetry. Computed up to n=5 by Jon Wild and Christopher Jones and communicated to N. J. A. Sloane on August 31 2016. Definition corrected Dec 10 2017 thanks to Manfred Scheucher, who has computed same result with Stefan Felsner independently.

The list of arrangements is available online on the Homepage of Pseudocircles (see below) and a detailed description for the enumeration can be found in Arrangements of Pseudocircles: On Circularizability (see below). - Manfred Scheucher, Dec 11 2017

See A250001, the main entry for this problem, for further information.
