COMMENTS

This array a(n,k), called (Multiset choose 1), is also denoted by MS(1;n,k).

MS(1;n,k) gives the number of ways to choose one element from the multiset encoded by the k-th multiset repetition class defining partition of n. a(n,k)=MS(1;n,k) is the largest part in the k-th multiset defining partition of n, i.e., the largest element in the multiset. The A-St order for partitions is used. For n=0 the empty multiset appears.

The row lengths of this array are A007294(n).

Multisets are sets in which the elements are allowed to appear more than once. Representatives of repetition classes can be characterized as certain partitions of the non-negative integers n. For the characteristic array of these partitions of n in A-St order see A176723.

This is the first member of an l-family of arrays for multiset choose l, called MS(l;n,k). This investigation was stimulated by the quoted Griffiths and Mezo (written with hungarian \H o) paper.

FORMULA

a(n,k)= largest part in the k-th multiset repetition class defining partition of n>=1. a(0,1):=0. See the characteristic array A176723 in order to find this partition.

a(n,k) = largest element of the k-th multiset repetition class representative in row n>=1, a(0,1):=0.

EXAMPLE

[0],

[1],

[1],

[2,1],

[2,1],

[2,1],

[3,2,2,1],

[3,2,2,1],

[3,2,2,1],

[3,3,2,2,2,1],

...

a(6,2)=MS(1;6,2)=2 because the second multiset repetition class defining partition of n=6 is [1^2,2^2] (from the characteristic array A176723) encoding the 4-multiset representative {1,1,2,2}, and there are 2 ways to choose 1 element from this set.
