COMMENTS

This is different from A080575 and A178867.
T[n,m]=count of set partitions of n with block lengths given by the mth partition of n.
From Tilman Neumann, Oct 05 2008: (Start)
These are also the coefficients occurring in complete Bell polynomials, Faa di Bruno's formula (in its simplest form) and computation of moments from cumulants.
Though the Bell polynomials seem quite unwieldy, they can be computed easily as the determinant of an ndimensional square matrix. (see e.g. [Coffey] and program below)
The complete Bell polynomial of the first n primes gives A007446.
(End)
A relation between partition polynomials formed from these "refined" Stirling numbers of the second kind and umbral operator trees and Lagrange inversion is presented in the link "Lagrange a la Lah".
For simple diagrams of the relation between connected graphs, cumulants, and A036040 see the references on statistical physics below. In some sense, these graphs are duals of the umbral bouquets presented in "Lagrange a la Lah".  Tom Copeland, Apr 29 2011

FORMULA

E.g.f. A(t)= exp(sum(x[k]*(t^k)/k!,k=1..infinity)).
T(n,m) is the coefficient of ((t^n)/n!)* x[1]^e(m,1)*x[2]^e(m,2)*...*x[n]^e(m,n) in A(t). Here the mth partition of n, counted in AbramowitzStegun(ASt) order, is [1^e(m,1), 2^e(m,2), ..., n^e(m,n)] with e(m,j)>=0 and if e(m, j)=0 then j^0 is not recorded.
a(n, m)= n!/product((j!^e(m,j))*e(m,j)!,j=1..n ), with [1^e(m,1),2^e(m,2), ...,n^e(m, n)] the mth partition of n in the mentioned ASt order.
With the notation in the Lang reference, x(1) treated as a variable and D the derivative w.r.t. x(1), a raising operator for the polynomial S(n,x(1)) = P3_n(x[1],...,x[n]) is R = sum(n=0,1,...) x(n+1) D^n / n! ; i.e., R S(n,x(1)) = S(n+1,x(1)). The lowering operator is D ; i.e., D S(n,x(1)) = n S(n1,x(1)). The sequence of polynomials is an Appell sequence, so [S(.,x(1))+y]^n = S(n,x(1)+y). For x(j) = (1)^(j1) (j1)! for j>1, S(n,x(1)) = [x(1)1]^n + n [x(1)1]^(n1).  Tom Copeland, Aug 01 2008
Raising and lowering operators are given for the partition polynomials formed from A036040 in the link in "Lagrange a la Lah Part I" on page 22.  Tom Copeland, Sep 18 2011
The nth row is generated by the determinant of [sum(k=0,..,n1 x_(k+1)*(dP_n)^k/k!)  S_n], where dP_n is the n X n submatrix of A132440 and S_n is the n X n submatrix of A129185. The coefficients are flagged by the partitions of n represented by the monomials in the indeterminates x_k. Letting all x_n = t, generates the Bell / Touchard / exponential polynomials of A008277.
