For each integer partition of n, consider each part of size k to be a box containing k balls of up to n color. Order among parts and especially among parts of the same size does not matter. - Olivier Gérard, Aug 26 2016

Illustration of first terms, ordered by number of parts, size of parts and smallest color of parts, etc.


a(1)=1 :


a(2)=6 = 3+3:




a(3)=38 = 10+18+10:










A:= proc(n, k) option remember; `if`(n=0, 1, add(add(d*

seq(a(n), n=0..20);  # Alois P. Heinz, Sep 26 2012


A[n_, k_] := A[n, k] = If[n == 0, 1, Sum[Sum[d*Binomial[d+k-1, k-1], {d, Divisors[j]}]*A[n-j, k], {j, 1, n}]/n]; a[n_] := A[n, n]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 20}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Nov 11 2015, after Alois P. Heinz *)


Main diagonal of A075196.

Cf. A001700 (n balls of one color in n unlabeled boxes).

Cf. A209668 (boxes are ordered by size but not by content among a given size: order among boxes of the same size matters.),

Cf. A261783 (compositions of balls of n colors: boxes are labeled)

Cf. A252654 (lists instead of boxes : order of balls matter)

Cf. A000262 (lists instead of boxes and all n colors are used)

Cf. A255906 (the c colors used form the interval [1,c])

Cf. A255951 (the n-1 colors used form the interval [1,n-1])

Cf. A255942 (0/1 binary coloring)

Cf. A066186 (only 1 color among n = n * p(n))

Cf. A000110 (the n possible colors are used : set partitions of [n])

Cf. A005651 (the n possible colors are used and order of parts of the same size matters)

Cf. A000670 (the n possible colors are used and order of all parts matters)
