FORMULA

With Z(S_{q,|m}) = [w^q] exp(Sum_{d|m} a_d w^d/d) and parameters n,k we have for nk even, (1/2) ((nk!)/k!/n!^k + (nk/2)! 2^(nk/2) [a_2^(nk/2)] Z(S_{k,|2})(Z_{n,|2}, a_2^n/n!) and for nk odd, (1/2) ((nk!)/k!/n!^k + ((nk-1)/2)! 2^((nk-1)/2) [a_1 a_2^((nk-1)/2)] Z(S_{k,|2})(Z_{n,|2}, a_2^n/n!). This sequence has k=4.
