Staircases, dominoes, and the growth rate of 1324-avoiders

Bevan, David; Brignall, Robert; Price, Andrew Elvey and Pantone, Jay (2017). Staircases, dominoes, and the growth rate of 1324-avoiders. In: Electronic Notes in Discrete Mathematics, 61 pp. 123–129.



We establish a lower bound of 10.271 for the growth rate of the permutations avoiding 1324, and an upper bound of 13.5. This is done by first finding the precise growth rate of a subclass whose enumeration is related to West-2-stack-sortable permutations, and then combining copies of this subclass in particular ways.
