(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A332344 a(n) is the number of permutations w of 1,2,...,n such that w is alternating and w^{-1} is reverse alternating. 2

EXAMPLE

The only alternating permutation of 1,2,3,4 whose inverse is reverse alternating is 2413.

The three alternating permutations of 1,...,5 whose inverses are reverse alternating are 24153, 24351 and 45231.

CROSSREFS

For odd n, a(n) = A007999(n).

For even n > 1, a(n) = A007999(n) - A007999(n-2).

For n > 1, a(n) = A332345(n)/2 - A007999(n).
