%N Number of functions from a set to itself such that the sizes of the preimages of the individual elements in the range form the n-th partition in Abramowitz and Stegun order.

%C a(n,k) is a refinement of 1; 2,2; 3,18,6; 4,84,144,24; ... cf. A019575.

%C a(n,k)/A036040(n,k) and a(n,k)/A048996(n,k) are also integer sequences.

%C Apparently a(n,k)/A036040(n,k) = A178888(n,k). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 17 2011

%e For n = 4, partition , we can map all three of {1,2,3} to any one of them, for 3 possible values. For n=5, partition [2,1], there are 3 choices for which element is alone in a preimage, 3 choices for which element to map that to and then 2 choices for which element to map the pair to, so a(5) = 3*3*2 = 18.
