FORMULA

G.f.: B(x)^3 where B(x) is g.f. of A000081.

MAPLE

b:= proc(n) option remember; if n<=1 then n else add(k*b(k)* s(n-1, k), k=1..n-1)/(n-1) fi end: s:= proc(n, k) option remember; add(b(n+1-j*k), j=1..iquo(n, k)) end: B:= proc(n) option remember; add(b(k)*x^k, k=1..n) end: a:= n-> coeff(series(B(n-2)^3, x=0, n+1), x, n): seq(a(n), n=3..29); # Alois P. Heinz, Aug 21 2008

MATHEMATICA

max = 29; b[n_] := b[n] = If[n <= 1, n, Sum[k*b[k]*s[n-1, k], {k, 1, n-1}]/(n-1)]; s[n_, k_] := s[n, k] = Sum[ b[n+1-j*k], {j, 1, Quotient[n, k]}]; f[x_] := Sum[ b[k]*x^k, {k, 0, max}]; Drop[ CoefficientList[ Series[f[x]^3, {x, 0, max}], x], 3] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Oct 25 2011, after Alois P.
