COMMENTS

The lowering (or delta) operator for these polynomials is L = (D-1)/2 + T{ (1/2) * exp[(D-1)/2] } and the raising operator is R = 2t * { 1 - T[ (1/2) * exp[(D-1)/2] ] }, where T(x) is the tree function of A000169. In addition, L = E(D,1) = A(D) where E(x,t) is the e.g.f. of A134991 and A(x) is the e.g.f. of A000311, so L = sum(j=1,...) A000311(j) * D^j / j! also. The polynomials and operators can be generalized through A134991.

FORMULA

Row polynomials are P(n,t) = sum(j=1,...,n) C(n,j) * x^j = [ Bell(.,-t) + 2t ]^n,umbrally, where Bell(j,t) are the Touchard/Bell/exponential polynomials described in A008277, with P(0,t) = 1 .

The e.g.f. is exp{ t * [ -exp(x) + 2x + 1] } and [ P(.,t) + P(.,s) ]^n = P(n,s+t) .

The lowering operator gives L[P(n,t)] = n * P(n-1,t) = (D-1)/2 * P(n,t) + sum(j=1,...) j^(j-1) * 2^(-j) / j! * exp(-j/2) * P(n,t + j/2) .

The raising operator gives R[P(n,t)] = P(n+1,t) = 2t * { P(n,t) - sum(j=1,...) j^(j-1) * 2^(-j) / j! * exp(-j/2) * P(n,t + j/2) } .

Therefore P(n+1,t) = 2t * { [ (1+D)/2 * P(n,t) ] - n * P(n-1,t) } .

P(n,1) = (-1)^n * A074051(n) and P(n,-1) = A126617(n) .

See Rota, Roman, Mathworld or Wikipedia on Sheffer sequences and umbral calculus for more formulae, including expansion theorems.
