COMMENTS

Also the number of (1,2,2) or (2,2,1)-avoiding compositions.

We define a pattern to be a finite sequence covering an initial interval of positive integers. Patterns are counted by A000670 and ranked by A333217. A sequence S is said to match a pattern P if there is a not necessarily contiguous subsequence of S whose parts have the same relative order as P. For example, (3,1,1,3) matches (1,1,2), (2,1,1), and (2,1,2), but avoids (1,2,1), (1,2,2), and (2,2,1).

A composition of n is a finite sequence of positive integers summing to n.

FORMULA

a(n > 0) = 2^(n - 1) - A335472(n).

EXAMPLE

The a(0) = 1 through a(5) = 15 compositions:

  ()  (1)  (2)   (3)    (4)     (5)

           (11)  (12)   (13)    (14)

                 (21)   (22)    (23)

                 (111)  (31)    (32)

                        (112)   (41)

                        (121)   (113)

                        (211)   (122)

                        (1111)  (131)

                                (221)

                                (311)

                                (1112)

                                (1121)

                                (1211)

                                (2111)

                                (11111)
