Some applications of S-restricted set partitions
- 16 Downloads
In the paper, the authors present several new relations and applications for the combinatorial sequence that counts the possible partitions of a finite set with the restriction that the size of each block is contained in a given set. One of the main applications is in the study of lonesum matrices.
