COMMENTS

The arithmetic mean, M(n), of all parts of all partitions of n can be approximated by n^e(n), as typified by these pairs:

n ..... 100 .... 1000 .... 2000 .... 3000 .... 4000 .... 5000

e(n) .. 0.331 .. 0.3410 .. 0.3447 .. 0.3468 .. 0.3483 .. 0.3495

FORMULA

M(n) = A066186(n)/A006128(n).

EXAMPLE

First eight means:  1, 4/3, 3/2, 5/3, 7/4, 66/35, 35/18, 88/43.

MAPLE

b:= proc(n, i) option remember; `if`(n=0, [1, 0$2],

      `if`(i<1, [0$3], b(n, i-1)+`if`(i>n, [0$3],

       (l-> l+[0, l[1]*i, l[1]])(b(n-i, i)))))

    end:

a:= n-> numer((l->l[2]/l[3])(b(n$2))):

seq(a(n), n=1..50);  # Alois P. Heinz, Feb 06 2014

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Sum[DivisorSigma[0, m] PartitionsP[n - m], {m, 1, n}]; u =  PartitionsP[Range[50]] Range[50]; t = Table[u[[n]]/f[n], {n, 1, 50}]

means = Map[Mean[Flatten[IntegerPartitions[#]]] &, Range[50]]; pwrLaw = a x^b; fit = FindFit[means, pwrLaw, {a, b}, x]; Show[{ListPlot[means], Plot[Function[{x}, Evaluate[pwrLaw /. fit]][x], {x, 1, Length[means]}]}]
