COMMENTS

A hypergraph H is a pair (V,E) consisting of a finite set V of vertices and a set E of hyperedges given by subsets of V containing at least two elements. A walk in a hypergraph H connecting vertices v0 and vn is a sequence v0, e1, v1, e2, ... , v(n1), en, vn, where each vi is in V and each ei is in E and for each ei the set {v(i1),vi} is contained in ei. If for every pair of vertices v and v0 there is a walk in H starting at v and ending at v0 then H is called connected. A walk is a cycle if it contains at least two edges, all of the ei are distinct and all of the vi are distinct except v0 = vn. A connected hypergraph with no cycles is called a hypertree. A rooted hypertree is a hypertree in which one particular vertex is selected as being the root. For the enumeration of unrooted hypertrees see A210587.

FORMULA

T(n,k) = n^k*Stirling2(n1,k). T(n,k) = n*A210587(n,k).
E.g.f. A(x,t) = t + 2*x*t^2/2! + (3*x + 9*x^2)*t^3/3! + ... satisfies A(x,t) = t*exp(x*(exp(A(x,t))  1)).
Dobinskitype formula for the row polynomials: R(n,x) = exp(n*x)*sum {k = 0..inf} n^k*k^(n1)x^k/k!.
Row sums A035051.
The e.g.f. is essentially the series reversion of t/F(x,t) w.r.t. t, where F(x,t) = exp(x*(exp(t)  1)) is the e.g.f. of the Stirling numbers of the second kind A048993.  Peter Bala, Oct 28 2015

T(4,2) = 48. The twelve unrooted hypertrees on 4 vertices {1,2,3,4} with 2 hyperedges (one a 2edge and one a 3edge) have hyperedges:
{1,2,3} and {3,4); {1,2,3} and {2,4); {1,2,3} and {1,4);
{1,2,4} and {1,3); {1,2,4} and {2,3); {1,2,4} and {3,4);
{1,3,4} and {1,2); {1,3,4} and {2,3); {1,3,4} and {2,4);
{2,3,4} and {1,2); {2,3,4} and {1,3); {2,3,4} and {1,4).
Choosing one of the four vertices as the root gives a total of 4x12 = 48 rooted hypertrees on 4 vertices.
