 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS A set-system is a finite set of finite nonempty sets. Its elements are sometimes called edges. The dual of a set-system has, for each vertex, one edge consisting of the indices (or positions) of the edges containing that vertex. For example, the dual of {{1,2},{2,3}} is {{1},{1,2},{2}}. This sequence counts covering set-systems that are cointersecting, meaning their dual is pairwise intersecting. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..7. FORMULA Inverse binomial transform of A327039. EXAMPLE The a(0) = 1 through a(2) = 4 set-systems: {} {{1}} {{1,2}} {{1},{1,2}} {{2},{1,2}} {{1},{2},{1,2}} MATHEMATICA dual[eds_]:=Table[First/@Position[eds, x], {x, Union@@eds}]; stableQ[u_, Q_]:=!Apply[Or, Outer[#1=!=#2&&Q[#1, #2]&, u, u, 1], {0, 1}]; Table[Length[Select[Subsets[Subsets[Range[n], {1, n}]], Union@@#==Range[n]&&stableQ[dual[#], Intersection[#1, #2]=={}&]&]], {n, 0, 3}] CROSSREFS The unlabeled multiset partition version is A319752. The BII-numbers of these set-systems are A326853. The antichain case is A327020. The pairwise intersecting case is A327037. The non-covering version is A327039. The case where the dual is strict is A327053. Cf. A003465, A305843, A305844, A306006, A319774, A327052.
