Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A340890 a(n) is the number of preference profiles for n men and n women, where all men prefer the same woman. 5
1, 8, 5184, 1719926784, 990677827584000000, 2495937495082991616000000000000, 58001506007267709490243656115814400000000000000, 23264754073069200132851692722771970253637181903994880000000000000000 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



This is the same number of preference profiles as when all men rank the same woman at the i-th place, where i can be anywhere from 1 to n.

Note that we can swap men and women in the definition of the sequence.

The total number of possible profiles is A185141.

a(n) = n!^n A342573(n), where A342573 ignores women's preferences.

a(n) is a subsequence of A001013.

a(n) = n(n-1)!^n * n!^n.


When n=2, the total number of profiles is 16, and in half of them, the same woman is ranked 1st by both men.
