COMMENTS

For the definition of multisets see, e.g., Stanley, p. 15.
Partitions of natural numbers n are ordered according to AbramowitzStegun (ASt) order.
Partitions of n>=1 are written in the exponent form (1^e[1], 2^e[2], 3^e[3],..., n^e[n]) with e[j] nonnegative numbers, for j=1,2,...,n, sum(e[j],j=1..n)=m (number of parts), and sum(j*e[j],j=1..n)=n. The empty partition for n=0 defines the empty multiset. In A115621 the multiset/partition of positive exponents is called the signature of the partition.
The classes being represented are the classes with the same signature.
Definition of multiset repetition class defining partitions: Every m part partition of n which has positive nonincreasing exponents defines a representative of a multiset repetition class of order m (a special mmultiset); i.e., the exponents of such partitions satisfy e[1] >= e[2] >= ... >= e[M] >= 1 with largest part M. This will satisfy T(M) <= n where T(M) = A000217(M) is the sequence of triangular numbers; for n>=1 every sufficiently small positive M does occur.
Note that for each multiset repetition class the chosen defining partition (its representative) is the one with least n.
See below for some examples.

FORMULA

a(n,k)=1 if the kth partition of n in ASt order (see above for the abbreviation ASt and a reference) is multiset defining and 0 else. The definition of a multiset repetition class defining partition is given above. See the examples below.


EXAMPLE

[1]; [1]; [01]; [011]; [00,011]; [00,00,011]; [00,0,00,1,00,111];... For each row n (separated by ;) the  separates partitions with different number of parts.
For n=6 the entry 1 at the 6th position stands for the partition (1^1,2^1,3^1)=(1,2,3) in ASt order.
The m=3 multiset corresponding to partition (1,2,3) coincides with the ordinary 3set {1,2,3}.
Partition (1^4,2^1) = (1^4,2) (marking the nexttolast entry in row n=6) corresponds to the (m=5)multiset {1,1,1,1,2}.
