 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS From David Pasino, Dec 03 2008: (Start) The number of refinements of a partition is the product of the Bell numbers of the cell sizes. The number of encoarsements is the Bell number of the number of cells. For these to be equal, a Bell number has to be a product of Bell numbers. This happens if there are n-1 single-element cells and 1 n-element cell. Does it ever happen otherwise? (End) LINKS Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..104 (terms 0..70 from T. D.
