COMMENTS

The "Stirling-Bernoulli transform" maps a sequence b_0, b_1, b_2, ... to a sequence c_0, c_1, c_2, ..., where if B has o.g.f. B(x), c has e.g.f. exp(x)*B(1-exp(x)). More explicitly, c_n = Sum_{m=0..n} (-1)^m*m!*Stirling2(n+1,m+1)*b_m.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..n} A163626(n,k)*A000108(k). - Philippe Deléham, May 25 2015

MAPLE

a:= n-> add((-1)^k *k! *Stirling2(n+1, k+1)*binomial(2*k, k)/

        (k+1), k=0..n):

seq(a(n), n=0..20);  # Alois P. Heinz, May 17 2013

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Sum[(-1)^k k! StirlingS2[n+1, k+1] CatalanNumber[k], {k, 0, n}];
