COMMENTS

Coefficients for Lagrange (compositional) inversion of a function in terms of the Taylor series expansion of its shifted reciprocal. Complementary to A134264 for formal power series and a scaled version of A248927. A refinement of A055302, which enumerates the number of labeled rooted trees with n nodes and k leaves, with row sums A000169.

Given an invertible function f(t) analytic about t=0 with f(0)=0 and df(0)/dt not 0, form h(t) = t / f(t) and denote h_n = (n') as the coefficient of t^n/n! in h(t). Then the compositional inverse of f(t), g(t), as a formal Taylor series, or e.g.f., is given up to the first few orders by

g(t) =   [ 1 (0') ] * t

       + [ 2 (0') (1') ] * t^2/2!

       + [ 6 (0') (1')^2 + 3 (0')^2 (2') ] * t^3/3!

       + [24 (0') (1')^3 + 36 (0')^2 (1') (2') + 4 (0')^3 (3')] * t^4/4!

       + [120 (0') (1')^4 + 360 (0')^2 (1')^2 (2') + (0')^3 [60 (2')^2

           + 80 (1') (3')] + 5 (0')^4 (4')] * t^5/5!

       + [720 (0')(1')^5 + 3600 (0')^2 (1')^3(2') + (0')^3 [1800 (1')(2')^2 + 1200 ( 1')^2(3')] + (0')^4 [300 (2')(3') + 150 (1')(4')] + 6 (0')^5 (5')] * t^6/6! + ... .

Operating with [1/(n*(n-1))] d/d(1') = [1/(n*(n-1))] d/d(h_1) on the n-th partition polynomial in square brackets above associated with t^n/n! generates the (n-1)-th partition polynomial.

Each n-th partition polynomial here is n times the (n-1)-th partition polynomial of A248927.

From Tom Copeland, Nov 24 2014: (Start)

The n-th row is a mapping of the homogeneous symmetric monomials generated by [x(1) + x(2) + ... + x(n)]^(n-1) under the umbral mapping x(m)^j = h_j, for any m. E.g., [a + b + c]^2 = [a^2 + b^2 + c^2] + 2 * [a*b + a*c + b*c] is mapped to [3 * h_2] + 2 * [3 * h_1 * h_1] = 3 * h_2 + 6 *  h_1^2 = A248120(3) with h_0 = 1. (Example corrected Jul 14 2015.)

For another example and relations to A134264 and A036038, see A134264. The general relation is n * A134264(n) = A248120(n) / A036038(n-1) where the arithmetic is performed on the coefficients of matching partitions in each row n.

The Abramowitz and Stegun reference in A036038 gives combinatorial interpretations of A036038 and relations to other number arrays.

This can also be related to repeated umbral composition of Appell sequences and topology with the Bernoulli numbers playing a special role. See the Todd class link. (End)

As presented above and in the Copeland link, this entry is related to exponentiation of e.g.f.s and, therefore, to discussions in the Scott and Sokal preprint (see eqn. 3.1 on p. 10 and eqn. 3.62 p. 24). - Tom Copeland, Jan 17 2017

FORMULA

For j>1, there are P(j,m;a...) = j! / [ (j-m)! (a_1)! (a_2)! ... (a_(j-1))! ] permutations of h_0 through h_(j-1) in which h_0 is repeated (j-m) times; h_1, repeated a_1 times; and so on with a_1 + a_2 + ... + a_(j-1) = m.

If, in addition, a_1 + 2 * a_2 + ... + (j-1) * a_(j-1) = j-1, then each distinct combination of these arrangements is correlated with a partition of j-1.

T(j,k) is (j-1)! P(j,m;a...) / [(2!)^a_2 (3!)^a_3 ... ((j-1)!)^a_(j-1) ] for the k-th partition of j-1. The partitions are in reverse order--from bottom to top--from the order in Abramowitz and Stegun (page 831).

For example, from g(t) above, T(6,3) = 5! * [6!/(3!*2!)]/(2!)^2 = 1800 for the 3rd partition from the bottom under n=6-1=5 with m=3 parts, and T(6,5) = 5! * [6!/4!]/(2!*3!) = 300.

If the initial factorial and final denominator of T(n,k) are removed and the expression divided by j and the partitions reversed in order, then A134264 is obtained, a refinement of the Narayana numbers.

For f(t) = t*e^(-t), g(t) = T(t), the Tree function, which is the e.g.f. of A000169, and h(t) = t/f(t) = e^t, so h_n = 1 for all n in this case; therefore, the row sums are A000169(n) = n^(n-1) = n* A000272(n).

Let W(x) = 1/(df(x)/dx)= 1/{d[x/h(x)]/dx}=1/[d{x/[h_0+h_1*x+ ...]/dx]. Then the partition polynomials above are given by (W(x)*d/dx)^n x, evaluated at x=0, and the compositional inverse of f(t) is g(t)= exp(t*W(x)*d/dx) x, evaluated at x=0. Also, dg(t)/dt = W(g(t)). See A145271.

With exp[x* PS(.,t)] = exp[t*g(x)]=exp[x*W(y)d/dy] exp(t*y) eval. at y=0, the raising (creation) and lowering (annihilation) operators defined by R PS(n,t) = PS(n+1,t) and L PS(n,t)= n * PS(n-1,t) are R = t * W(d/dt) and L =(d/dt)/h(d/dt)=(d/dt) 1/[(h_0)+(h_1)*d/dt+(h_2)*(d/dt)^2/2!+...], which will give a lowering operator associated to the refined f-vectors of permutohedra (cf. A133314 and A049019).

Then [dPS(n,z)/dz]/n eval. at z=0 are the row partition polynomials of this entry. (Cf. A139605, A145271, and link therein to Mathemagical Forests for relation to planted trees on p. 13.)

Following the notes connected to the Lagrange reversion theorem in A248927, a generator for the n-th partition polynomial P_n of this entry is (d/dx)^(n-1) (h (x))^n, and -log(1-t*P.) = (t*Q.) / (1 - t*Q.), umbrally, where (Q.)^n = Q_n is the n-th partition polynomial of A248927. - Tom Copeland, Nov 25 2016

  ...

For f(t)= e^t-1, h(t)= t/f(t)= t/(e^t-1), the e.g.f. for the Bernoulli numbers, and plugging the Bernoulli numbers into the Lagrange inversion formula gives g(t)= t - t^2/2 + t^3/3 + ... = log(1+t).
