COMMENTS

The definition of the e.g.f. A(x) is an application of the identity

Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n*log(1 - q^n*x)^n*y^n/n! = Sum_{n>=0} binomial(q^n*y +n-1, n)*x^n at x=1, y=1, q=x.

FORMULA

E.g.f.: A(x) = Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n * log(1 - x^n)^n/n!.

E.g.f.: A(x) = Sum_{n>=0} Sum_{k=0..n} |Stirling1(n,k)|*x^(n*k)/n!.

a(p) = (p-1)! for prime p.

EXAMPLE

E.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + x^2/2! + 2*x^3/3! + 18*x^4/4! + 24*x^5/5! +...

Series expansions:

A(x) = 1 - log(1 - x) + log(1 - x^2)^2/2! - log(1 - x^3)^3/3! + log(1 - x^4)^4/4! +...+ (-1)^n*log(1 - x^n)^n/n! +...

A(x) = 1 + x + x^2*(x^2+1)/2! + x^3*(x^3+1)*(x^3+2)/3! + x^4*(x^4+1)*(x^4+2)*(x^4+3)/4! +...+ binomial(x^n + n-1, n) +...

Coefficients a(n)/n! in the series expansion of the e.g.f. begin:

A(x) = 1 + 1/2*x + 1/3*x^2 + 3/4*x^3 + 1/5*x^4 + 2/3*x^5 + 1/7*x^6 + 7/12*x^7 + 5/18*x^8 + 31/60*x^9 + 1/11*x^10 + 257/360*x^11 + 1/13*x^12 +...

which illustrates the property a(p)/p! = 1/p for prime p.
