 Dear friends,
 I'm looking in literature theory of certain partitions of a integer. 
 Have you worked with partitions of a integer n in n terms where the 
 summation is not associative (or know someone or texts about it, or 
 other discussion list)? 
 I have to count P(n): the number of partitions of n with n positive 
 integers (the only so integer is one) terms where the + operator is not 
 associative, but is commutative; but the recurrence isn't simple. See 
 2 = (1+1); 
 (thus P(2)=1) 
 3 = ((1+1)+1); 
 (thus P(3)=1) 
 4 = (((1+1)+1)+1), ((1+1)+(1+1)); 
 (thus P(4)=2) 
 = ((((1+1)+1)+1)+1), (((1+1)+(1+1))+1), (((1+1)+1)+(1+1)); 
 (thus P(5)=3) 
 Thanks for all help,
