 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS The fertility of a permutation pi is |s^{-1}(pi)|, where s is West's stack-sorting map. A nonnegative integer is called a fertility number if it is the fertility of some permutation. The set of fertility numbers is closed under multiplication. Every nonnegative integer that is not congruent to 3 modulo 4 is a fertility number. The lower asymptotic density of this sequence is at least 0.7618. In particular, there are infinitely many fertility numbers that are congruent to 3 modulo 4. The smallest of these is 27. It appears as though 95 is the second-smallest fertility number that is congruent to 3 modulo 4. It is conjectured that there are infinitely many positive integers that are not fertility numbers. Empirically found 149 terms congruent 3 mod 4, the second smallest being 39 followed by 51, 63, 95, 123, ... - Jon Maiga, Oct 28 2018 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..25. C. Defant, Fertility numbers, arXiv:1809:04421 [math.CO], 2018. J. Maiga, Stack sorting and fertility numbers, 2018. EXAMPLE The preimages of 123 under the stack-sorting map are 123, 132, 213, 312, and 321. This shows that the fertility of 123 is 5, so 5 is a fertility number.
