COMMENTS

Combinatorial interpretations of Lagrange inversion (A134685) and the 2-restricted Stirling numbers of the first kind (A049444 and A143491) provide a combinatorial construction for A074060 (see first Copeland link). For relations of A074060 to other arrays see second Copeland link page 19. - Tom Copeland, Sep 28 2008

FORMULA

Define offset to be 0 and P(n,t) = (-1)^n sum(j=0..n-2 a(n-2,j)*t^j ) with P(1,t) = -1 and P(0,t) = 1, then H(x,t) = -1 + exp(P(.,t)*x) is the compositional inverse in x about 0 of G(x,t) in A049444. H(x,0) = exp(-x) - 1, H(x,1) = -1 + exp{ 2 + W[ -exp(-2) * (2-x) ] } and H(x,2) = 1 - (1+2*x)^(1/2), where W is a branch of the Lambert function such that W(-2*exp(-2)) = -2. - Tom Copeland, Feb 17 2008

Let offset=0 and g(x,t) = (1-t)/((1+x)^(t-1)-t), then the n-th row polynomial of the table is given by [(g(x,t)*D_x)^(n+1)]x with the derivative evaluated at x=0. - Tom Copeland, Jun 01 2008

With the notation in Copeland's comments, dH(x,t)/dx = -g(H(x,t),t). - Tom Copeland, Sep 01 2011

The term linear in x of [x*g(d/dx,t)]^n 1 gives the n-th row polynomial with offset 1. (See A134685.)  - Tom Copeland, Oct 21 2011
