 A171998 In general, let A(n,k,m) denote the (n,k)-th entry of the inverse of the matrix consisting of the (n,k)-th m-restrained Stirling numbers of the second kind (-1)^(n-k) times the number of permutations of an n-set with k disjoint cycles of length less than or equal to m) as the (n+1,k+1)-th entry. The sequence shows A(n,k,3), which is a lower triangular matrix, read by rows. 1

FORMULA A(n,k,m) = A(n-1,k-1,m) - Sum_{i=1..m-1} (-1)^{i}(k)...(k+i-1) A(n,k+i,m) A(n,k,m) = A(n-1,k-1,m) + k A(n-1,k,m) + (-1)^m k(k+1)...(k+m-1)A(n,k+m,m). EXAMPLE A(1,1,3) = 1, A(1,2,3) = 0, A(1,3,3) = 0, A(1,4,3) = 0, ... A(2,1,3) = 1, A(2,2,3) = 1, A(2,3,3) = 0, A(2,4,3) = 0, ... A(3,1,3) = 1, A(3,2,3) = 3, A(3,3,3) = 1, A(3,4,3) = 0, ... A(4,1,3) = -5, A(4,2,3) = 7, A(4,3,3) = 6, A(4,4,3) = 1, ... In other words, A(n,k,3) is the matrix 1 1 1 1 3 1 -5 7 6 1 ... with all other entries in each row being 0. - N. J. A.
