COMMENTS

Also, A(n,k) is the number of alignments for k sequences of length n each (Slowinski 1998).

Row r > 0 is asymptotic to sqrt(r*Pi) * (r^(r-1)/(r-1)!)^n * n^(r*n+1/2) / (2^(r/2) * exp(r*n) * (log(2))^(r*n+1)), or equivalently to sqrt(r) * (r^(r-1)/(r-1)!)^n * (n!)^r / (2^r * (Pi*n)^((r-1)/2) * (log(2))^(r*n+1)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 23 2016

From Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 23 2016: (Start)

Column k > 0 is asymptotic to sqrt(c(k)) * d(k)^n / (Pi*n)^((k-1)/2), where c(k) and d(k) are roots of polynomial equations of degree k, independent on n.
