Table of n, a(n) for n=0..12.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n!,k) * k!/n! * (-1)^(n-k) * Stirling1(n,k).

EXAMPLE

Illustration of initial terms.

a(0) = 1;

a(1) = [x^1] (1 + x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 +...)^1! = 1 ;

a(2) = [x^2] (1 + x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 +...)^2!, or

a(2) = [x^2] (1 + 2*x + 2*x^2 + 5/3*x^3 + 17/12*x^4 +...) = 2 ;

a(3) = [x^3] (1 + x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 +...)^3!, or

a(3) = [x^3] (1 + 6*x + 18*x^2 + 37*x^3 + 241/4*x^4 +...) = 37 ;

a(4) = [x^4] (1 + x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 +...)^4!, or

a(4) = [x^4] (1 + 24*x + 288*x^2 + 2308*x^3 + 13921*x^4 +...) = 13921 ;

...

a(n) = [x^n] (1 + x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 +...+ x^k/k +...)^n! ;

in which the main diagonal forms this sequence: a(n) = T(n,n),

where

T(n,k) = Sum_{j=0..k} binomial(n!, j) * j!/k! * (-1)^(k-j) * Stirling1(k, j).
