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”).

COMMENTS

A multiset is normal if it spans an initial interval of positive integers. It is aperiodic if its multiplicities are relatively prime.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} Sum_{d|k} mu(k/d) * Sum_{i=1..d} binomial(d-1, i-1)*binomial(n-k+i, i). - Andrew Howroyd, Sep 18 2018

G.f.: Sum_{d>=1} mu(d)*x^d/((1 - x - x^d*(2-x))*(1-x)). - Andrew Howroyd, Feb 04 2021

EXAMPLE

The a(4) = 26 aperiodic multisets:

(1), (2), (3), (4),

(12), (13), (14), (23), (24), (34),

(112), (113), (122), (123), (124), (133), (134), (223), (233), (234),

(1112), (1123), (1222), (1223), (1233), (1234).

MATHEMATICA

allnorm[n_Integer]:=Function[s, Array[Count[s, y_/; y<=#]+1&, n]]/@Subsets[Range[n-1]+1];

PROG

(PARI) seq(n)={Vec(sum(d=1, n, moebius(d)*x^d/(1 - x - x^d*(2-x)) + O(x*x^n))/(1-x))} \\ Andrew Howroyd, Feb 04 2021
