FORMULA

A partition of {-n, ..., -1, 1, ..., n} into nonempty subsets X_1, ..., X_r is called `symmetric' if for each i -X_i = X_j for some j. S_B(n, k) is the number of such symmetric partitions whose induced partition on {1, ..., n} involves k nonempty subsets. S_B(n, k) = S(n, k) * a(k), where S(n, k) is A008277 and a(k) is A005425.

EXAMPLE

S_B(2,2)=5 because the relevant partitions of {-2,-1,1,2} are: {-2|-1|1|2}, {-1,1|-2|2}, {-1|1|-2,2}, {-1,1|-2,2}, {1,-2|-1,2}.

CROSSREFS

S_B(n, 1)+...+S_B(n, n) = A002872(n).
