COMMENTS

A035098 and A000070 are near the two ends of a spectrum. Another way to look at A000070 is as the number of partitions of an n-multiset with multiplicities n-1, 1.

The very ends are the number of partitions and the Stirling numbers of the second kind, which count the n-multiset partitions with multiplicities n and 1,1,1,...,1, respectively.

Intermediate sequences are the number of ways of partitioning an n-multiset with multiplicities some partition of n.

FORMULA

Sum_{k=0..n} Stirling2(n, k)*((k+1)*(k+2)/2+1). E.g.f.: 1/2*(1+exp(x))^2*exp(exp(x)-1). (1/2)*(Bell(n)+Bell(n+1)+Bell(n+2)). - Vladeta Jovovic, Sep 23 2003

EXAMPLE

a(3)=4 because there are 4 ways to partition the multiset {1,2,2} (with multiplicities {1,2}): {{1,2,2}} {{1,2},{2}} {{1},{2,2}} {{1},{2},{2}}.

MAPLE

with(combinat): a:= n-> floor(1/2*(bell(n-2)+bell(n-1)+bell(n))): seq(a(n), n=1..25); # Zerinvary Lajos, Oct 07 2007

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Sum[ StirlingS2[n, k] ((k + 1) (k + 2)/2 + 1), {k, 0, n}]; Array[f, 22, 0]

f[n_] := (BellB[n] + BellB[n + 1] + BellB[n + 2])/2; Array[f, 22, 0]
