This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

%N Triangle read by rows: S_B(n,k) = `Type B' Stirling numbers of the second kind.

%F 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.

%e 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}.

%Y Cf. A008277, A005425.

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