COMMENTS

Number of 2 X n binary matrices avoiding simultaneously the right angled numbered polyomino patterns (ranpp) (00;1), (01,1) and (11;0). An occurrence of a ranpp (xy;z) in a matrix A=(a(i,j)) is a triple (a(i1,j1), a(i1,j2), a(i2,j1)) where i1<i2, j1<j2 and these elements are in the same relative order as those in the triple (x,y,z). In general, the number of m X n 0-1 matrices in question is given by (n+2)*2^(m-1)+2*m*(n-1)-2 for m>1 and n>1. - Sergey Kitaev (kitaev(AT)ms.uky.edu), Nov 12 2004

If Y is a 4-subset of an n-set X then, for n>=4, a(n-4) is the number of 3-subsets of X having at least two elements in common with Y. - Milan Janjic, Dec 08 2007

4th transversal numbers (or 4-transversal numbers): Numbers of the 4th column of positive numbers in the square array of nonnegative and polygonal numbers A139600. Also, numbers of the 4th column in the square array A057145. - Omar E. Pol, May 02 2008

a(n) is the maximum number such that there exists an edge coloring of the complete graph with a(n) vertices using n colors and every subgraph whose edges are of the same color (subgraph induced by edge color) is planar. - Srikanth K S, Dec 18 2010

Also numbers having two antecedents in the Collatz problem: 12*n+8 and 2*n+1 (respectively A017617(n) and A005408(n)). - Michel Lagneau, Dec 28 2012
