COMMENTS

This is the limiting value of the probability that a random n-permutation will have no cycles of length less than k (for any k) as n goes to infinity. For example, the probability (as n goes to infinity) that a random n-permutation has no fixed points is 1/exp(1). The probability that it has no cycles of length 1 or 2 is 1/exp(1+1/2). The probability that it has no cycles of length 1 or 2 or 3 is 1/exp(1+1/2+1/3!)...
