FORMULA

F(n,k)= C(n,k)*A001906(k-1), (n>=k>0),F(0,0)=1

EXAMPLE

F(3,2) = 9 because there are exactly 9 idempotent order-preserving partial transformations (on a 3-element chain) of width 2, namely: (1,2)->(1,1), (1,2)->(1,2), (1,2)->(2,2), (1,2)->(3,3), (1,3)->(1,1), (1,3)->(1,3),(1,3)->(3,3), (2,3)->(2,2), (2,3)->(2,3),( 2,3)->(3,3) - the mappings are coordinate-wise
