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

Is this sequence essentially the same as A006691?

Conjecture: a(n) is the number of connected n-state finite automata with 2 inputs (A006691). [I believe the name of A006691 should be changed to read "(n+1)-state". See my comments in A006691. - Petros Hadjicostas, Feb 26 2021]

Equals row 2 of table A304321.

FORMULA

Logarithmic derivative of the o.g.f. of A304322.

For n>=1, a(n) = B_{n+1}((n+1)^2-0!*a(0),-1!*a(1),...,-(n-1)!*a(n-1),0) / n!, where B_{n+1}(...) is the (n+1)-st complete exponential Bell polynomial. - Max Alekseyev, Jun 18 2018

a(n) ~ sqrt(1-c) * 2^(2*n + 3/2) * n^(n + 3/2) / (sqrt(Pi) * c^(n+1) * (2-c)^(n+1) * exp(n)), where c = -A226775 = -LambertW(-2*exp(-2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 31 2020

EXAMPLE

O.g.f.: L(x) = 1 + 9*x + 148*x^2 + 3493*x^3 + 106431*x^4 + 3950832*x^5 + 172325014*x^6 + 8617033285*x^7 + 485267003023*x^8 + 30363691715629*x^9 + ...

such that L(x) = F'(x)/F(x) where F(x) is the o.g.f. of A304322 :

F(x) = 1 + x + 5*x^2 + 54*x^3 + 935*x^4 + 22417*x^5 + 685592*x^6 + 25431764*x^7 + 1106630687*x^8 + 55174867339*x^9 + 3097872254493*x^10 + ... + A304322(n)*x^n + ...

which satisfies [x^n] exp( n^2 * x ) / F(x) = 0 for n>0.

MATHEMATICA

m = 25;

F = 1 + Sum[c[k] x^k, {k, m}];

s[n_] := Solve[SeriesCoefficient[Exp[n^2 * x]/F, {x, 0, n}] == 0][[1]];

Do[F = F /. s[n], {n, m}];
