FORMULA

If a(n,m) = number of terms in m-derivative of a function composed with itself n times, p(n,k) = number of partitions of n into k parts, then a(n,m) = sum_{i=0..m} p(m,i)*a(n-1,i).

MATHEMATICA

b[n_, i_, k_] := b[n, i, k] = If[n < k, 0, If[n == 0, 1, If[i < 1, 0, Sum[b[n - i*j, i - 1, k - j], {j, 0, Min[n/i, k]}]]]];

a[n_, k_] := a[n, k] = If[k == 1, 1, Sum[b[n, n, i]*a[i, k-1], {i, 0, n}]];

a[n_] := a[n, 7];
