%N Triangle read by rows: the Bell transform of the triple factorial numbers A008544 without column 0.

%C Previous name was: Triangle of numbers related to triangle A048966; generalization of Stirling numbers of second kind A008277, Bessel triangle A001497.

%C a(n,m) := S2p(-2; n,m), a member of a sequence of triangles including S2p(-1; n,m) := A001497(n-1,m-1) (Bessel triangle) and ((-1)^(n-m))*S2p(1; n,m) := A008277(n,m) (Stirling 2nd kind). a(n,1)= A008544(n-1).

%C a(n,m), n>=m>=1, enumerates unordered n-vertex m-forests composed of m plane (aka ordered) increasing (rooted) trees where vertices of out-degree r>=0 come in r+1 different types (like an (r+1)-ary vertex). Proof from the e.g.f. of the first column Y(z):=1-(1-3*x)^(1/3) and the F. Bergeron et al. eq. (8) Y'(z)= phi(Y(z)), Y(0)=0, with out-degree o.g.f. phi(w)=1/(1-w)^2. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Oct 12 2007

%C Also the Bell transform of the triple factorial numbers A008544 which adds a first column (1,0,0 ...) on the left side of the triangle. For the definition of the Bell transform see A264428. See A051141 for the triple factorial numbers A032031 and A203412 for the triple factorial numbers A007559 as well as A039683 and A132062 for the case of double factorial numbers. - _Peter Luschny_, Dec 21 2015
