A344662


a(n) is the number of preference profiles in the stable marriage problem with n men and n women so that they form n pairs of people of different genders who rank each other first, and so that the men's preferences arranged in a matrix form a Latin square.

COMMENTS

Two people who rank each other first are called soulmates. The profiles in this sequence are required to have n pairs of soulmates.
The profiles with n pairs of soulmates are counted by sequence A343698. The profiles such that the men's preference form a Latin square are counted by A343696. The profiles in this sequence are the intersection of profiles in A343696 and A343698.
The GaleShapley algorithm (both menproposing and womenproposing) on the preference profiles described by this sequence ends in one round.

FORMULA



EXAMPLE

For n = 3, there are A002860(3) = 12 ways to set up the men's preference profiles, where A002860(n) is the number of Latin squares of order n. The men's first preferences set the women's first preferences, so we only need to complete the women's profiles with other preferences, which can be done in 2!^3 = 8 ways. Thus, A344662(3) = 12 * 8 = 96.
