%N Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n,k) (n>=2, 1<=k<=n) gives number of arrangements of the elements from the multiset M(n, 2) into exactly k disjoint cycles.

%C The multiset M(n, 2) consists of 2 1's and one copy of each of 2..n-1. For example, M(5,2) is the multiset {1,1,2,3,4}. See Griffiths reference for formula. - _Andrew Howroyd_, Feb 24 2020

%e From _Andrew Howroyd_, Feb 24 2020: (Start)

%e For n = 4, arrangements of the multiset {1,1,2,3} into cycles are:

%e T(4,1) = 3: (1123), (1132), (1213);

%e T(4,2) = 6: (112)(3), (113)(2), (123)(1), (132)(1), (11)(23) (12)(13);

%e T(4,3) = 4: (11)(2)(3), (12)(1)(3), (13)(1)(2), (23)(1)(1);

%e T(4,4) = 1: (1)(1)(2)(3).

%e (End)
