FORMULA

G.f. satisfies: L(x) = (1+x)*log(1+x) * L( log(1+x) ) /x.

Let E_n(x) = E_{n-1}(exp(x)-1) denote the n-th iteration of exp(x)-1, then

. L(E_n(x)) = L(x) * x * E_n'(x) / E_n(x) for all n.

G.f. L(x) forms column 0 in the matrix log of the Riordan array ((exp(x)-1)/x, exp(x)-1).

Manetti-Ricciardi Theorem 4.4 give a recurrence for K_n := a(n)/n! in terms of Stirling numbers. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 25 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f.: L(x) = x/(1!*2!) - x^2/(2!*3!) + 3*x^3/(3!*4!) - 16*x^4/(4!*5!) + 110*x^5/(5!*6!) - 540*x^6/(6!*7!) - 9240*x^7/(7!*8!) + 292320*x^8/(8!*9!) -+...

The Riordan array ((exp(x)-1)/x, exp(x)-1) begins:

1;

1/(1!2!), 1;

2/(2!3!), 2/(1!2!), 1;

6/(3!4!), 7/(2!3!), 3/(1!2!), 1;

24/(4!5!), 36/(3!4!), 15/(2!3!), 4/(1!2!), 1;

120/(5!6!), 248/(4!5!), 108/(3!4!), 26/(2!3!), 5/(1!2!), 1;

720/(6!7!), 2160/(5!6!), 1032/(4!5!), 240/(3!4!), 40/(2!3!), 6/(1!2!), 1; ...

where the g.f. of column k = ((exp(x)-1)/x)^(k+1) for k>=0.

...

The matrix log of the above array begins:

0;

1/(1!2!), 0;

-1/(2!3!), 2/(1!2!), 0;

3/(3!4!), -2/(2!3!), 3/(1!2!), 0;

-16/(4!5!), 6/(3!4!), -3/(2!3!), 4/(1!2!), 0;

110/(5!6!), -32/(4!5!), 9/(3!4!), -4/(2!3!), 5/(1!2!), 0;

-540/(6!7!), 220/(5!6!), -48/(4!5!), 12/(3!4!), -5/(2!3!), 6/(1!2!), 0;

-9240/(7!8!), -1080/(6!7!), 330/(5!6!), -64/(4!5!), 15/(3!4!), -6/(2!3!), 7/(1!2!), 0; ...

in which the g.f. of column k equals (k+1)*L(x) for k>=0 and L(x) is the g.f. of this sequence.

MATHEMATICA

K[1] = 1;

a[n_] := n! K[n];
