%N Triangle T(n, k), read by row, related to Euler's difference table A068106 (divide k-th diagonal of A068106 by k!).

%C The k-th column sequence, k >= 0, without leading zeros, enumerates the ways to distribute n beads, n >= 1, labeled differently from 1 to n, over a set of (unordered) necklaces, excluding necklaces with exactly one bead, and k+1 indistinguishable, ordered, fixed cords, each allowed to have any number of beads. Beadless necklaces as well as beadless cords each contribute a factor 1, hence for n=0 one has 1. See A000255 for the description of a fixed cord with beads. This comment derives from a family of recurrences found by Malin Sjodahl for a combinatorial problem for certain quark and gluon diagrams (Feb 27 2010). - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Jun 02 2010

%F From _Peter Bala_, Aug 14 2008: (Start)

%F The following remarks all relate to the array read as a square array: e.g.f for column k: exp(-y)/(1-y)^(k+1); e.g.f. for array: exp(-y)/(1-x-y) = (1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + ...) + (x + 2*x^2 + 3*x^3 + 4*x^4 + ...)*y + (1 + 3*x + 7*x^2 + 13*x^3 + ...)*y^2/2! + ... .

%F This table is closely connected to the constant e. The row, column and diagonal entries of this table occur in series formulas for e.

%F Row n for n >= 2: e = n!*(1/T(n,0) + (-1)^n*[1/(1!*T(n,0)*T(n,1)) + 1/(2!*T(n,1)*T(n,2)) + 1/(3!*T(n,2)*T(n,3)) + ...]). For example, row 3 gives e = 6*(1/2 - 1/(1!*2*11) - 1/(2!*11*32) - 1/(3!*32*71) - ...). See A095000.

%F Column 0: e = 2 + Sum_{n>=2} (-1)^n*n!/(T(n,0)*T(n+1,0)) = 2 + 2!/(1*2) - 3 !/(2*9) + 4!/(9*44) - ... .

%F Column k, k >= 1: e = (1 + 1/1! + 1/2! + ... + 1/k!) + 1/k!*Sum_{n >= 0} (-1)^n*n!/(T(n,k)*T(n+1,k)). For example, column 3 gives e = 8/3 + 1/6*(1/(1*3) - 1/(3*13) + 2/(13*71) - 6/(71*465) + ...).

%F Main diagonal: e = 1 + 2*(1/(1*1) - 1/(1*7) + 1/(7*71) - 1/(71*1001) + ...).

%F First subdiagonal: e = 8/3 + 5/(3*32) - 7/(32*465) + 9/(465*8544) - ... .

%F Second subdiagonal: e = 2*(1 + 2^2/(1*11) - 3^2/(11*181) + 4^2/(181*3539) - ...). See A143413.

%F Third subdiagonal: e = 3 - (2*3*5)/(2*53) + (3*4*7)/(53*1214) - (4*5*9)/(1214*30637) + ... .

%F For the corresponding results for the constants 1/e, sqrt(e) and 1/sqrt(e) see A143409, A143410 and A143411 respectively. For other arrays similarly related to constants see A008288 (for log(2)), A108625 (for zeta(2)) and A143007 (for zeta(3)). (End)
