A lambda-term is a term which is either a variable "x" (of size 1), an application of two lambda-terms (of size 1 + the sum of the sizes of the two subterms), or a lambda binding a new variable in a term (of size 1 + the size of the subterm).

Is there a generating function?

f(n,0) where f(1,1) = 1; f(0,k) = 0; f(n,k) = 0 if k>2n-1; f(n,k) = f(n-1,k) + f(n-1,k+1) + sum_{p=1 to n-2} sum_{c=0 to k} sum_{l=0 to k - c} [C^c_k C^l_(k-c) f(p,l+c) f(n-p-1,k-l)], where C^p_n are binomial coefficients (the last term is for the application where "c" is the number of common variables in both subterms). f(n,k) can be computed only using f(n',k') with n' < n and k' <= k + n - n'. f(n,k) is the number of lambda terms of size n (with size 1 for the variables) having exactly k free variables.

T(n,0) where T(0,m) = 0; T(1,m) = m; T(n+1,m) = T(n,m+1) + sum{k=0 to n-11} [T(n-k,m) T(k,m)].   T(n,m) is the number of lambda terms of size n (with size 1 for the variables) having at most m free variables. [Pierre Lescanne, Nov 18 2012]
