COMMENTS

From Peter Bala, Jan 27 2015: (Start)

Working with an offset of 0, this is the exponential Riordan array [exp(z), (exp(4*z) - 1)/4].

This is the triangle of connection constants between the polynomial basis sequences {x^n}n>=0 and { n!*4^n * binomial((x - 1)/4,n) }n>=0. An example is given below.

Call this array M and let P denote Pascal's triangle A007318 then P^2 * M = A225469; P^(-1) * M is a shifted version of A075499.

This triangle is the particular case a = 4, b = 0, c = 1 of the triangle of generalized Stirling numbers of the second kind S(a,b,c) defined in the Bala link. (End)

FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Jan 27 2015: (Start)

The following formulas assume an offset of 0.

T(n,k) = 1/(4^k*k!)*sum {j = 0..k} (-1)^(k-j)*binomial(k,j)*(4*j + 1)^n.

T(n,k) = sum {i = 0..n-1} 4^(i-k+1)*binomial(n-1,i)*Stirling2(i,k-1).

E.g.f.: exp(z)*exp(x/4*(exp(4*z) - 1)) = 1 + (1 + x)*z + (1 + 6*x + x^2)*z^2/2! + ....

O.g.f. for n-th diagonal: exp(-x/4)*sum {k >= 0} (4*k + 1)^(k + n - 1)*((x/4*exp(-x))^k)/k!.

O.g.f. column k: 1/( (1 - x)*(1 - 5*x)...(1 - (4*k + 1)*x ). (End)

EXAMPLE

The triangle starts in row n=1 as:

1;

1,1;

1,6,1;

1,31,15,1;

Connection constants: Row 4: [1, 31, 15, 1] so

x^3 = 1 + 31*(x - 1) + 15*(x - 1)*(x - 5) + (x - 1)*(x - 5)*(x - 9). - Peter Bala, Jan 27 2015
