Sequences from Harary and Palmer's Graphical Enumeration

Keywords: Harary, Palmer, graphs, counting, enumeration, integer sequences, concordance

  • For a long time I have had the idea of making a series of concordances which would list the integer sequences to be found in certain classical books (Riordan, Comtet, Stanley, Knuth, Graham-Knuth-Patashnik, etc.). Here is the third of these, a concordance to:

    Frank Harary and Edgar M. Palmer's Graphical Enumeration, Academic Press, 1973
  • The idea is that when you are reading one of these books, these files will give pointers to the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences whenever an interesting sequence is mentioned. This will enable you to see the terms of the sequence, recurrences, formulae, other references, links, most recent progress, etc.
  • Furthermore, the preparation of these concordances will supply additional sequences for the database, and additional references for existing sequences.
  • In case I have missed any sequences from this book, please send them to me at this address: njas@research.att.com.
  • There are several sequences in this book (marked below by ****) where not enough terms are given to make it possible to enter them into the database. It would be nice if someone would work these out and send them in to the database (unless of course they are there already, in which let me know and I will add links in both directions). Whenever possible, please use the convenient web page for Contributing a New Sequence or Comment.
  • Thanks to Christian G. Bower (bowerc@usa.net), Wolfdieter Lang (wolfdieter.lang@physik.uni-karlsruhe.de), and especially Vladeta Jovovic (vladeta@EUnet.yu), for updates and corrections to this file.

Page 18, Table 1.5.1: This shows values of C_p(k). Triangle formed by these numbers gives A058843.
Triangle of values of C_p(k)/2^(k*(k-1)/2) gives A058875.

Page 62. Corrections from Wolfdieter Lang (wolfdieter.lang@physik.uni-karlsruhe.de): eq. (3.3.10) should have an additional term -(Hbar^2(x))/x^2. There is also a misprint in the proof p. 63, line 4: it should be Z(S_{2},Hbar(x)) not H(x).
