 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS A series configuration is the unit element or an ordered concatenation of two or more parallel configurations and a parallel configuration is the unit element or a multiset of two or more series configurations. a(n) is the number of series configurations with n unit elements that are invariant under the reversal of all contained series configurations. LINKS FORMULA G.f.: x + (1 + P(x))*B(x^2) where P(x) is the g.f. of A339158 and B(x) is the g.f. of A003430. EXAMPLE In the following examples of series-parallel networks, elements in series are juxtaposed and elements in parallel are separated by '|'. The unit element is denoted by 'o'. a(1) = 1: (o). a(2) = 1: (oo). a(3) = 1: (ooo). a(4) = 3: (oooo), ((o|o)(o|o)), (o(o|o)o). a(5) = 4: (ooooo), ((o|o)o(o|o)), (o(o|oo)o), (o(o|o|o)o). a(6) = 11: (oooooo), ((o|o)oo(o|o)), (o(o|o)(o|o)o), ((o|oo)(o|oo)), ((o|o|o)(o|o|o)), (oo(o|o)oo), ((o|o)(o|o)(o|o)), (o(o|ooo)o), (o(oo|oo)o), (o(o|o|oo)o), (o(o|o|o|o)o). PROG (PARI) \\ here B(n) gives A003430 as a power series.
