4 APPLICATIONS OF THE UMBRAL CALCULUS 3. Telephone Numbers The nth telephone number gives the number of possible con gura-tions of an n-person telephone network in which only two-person phone calls are possible. The sequence of all telephone numbers is denoted t n. This sequence can be expressed by the following recurrence relation: t n= t n 1. Formal calculus and umbral calculus by Thomas J. Robinson. Publication date Collection arxiv; additional_collections; journals. In this paper we use the viewpoint of the formal calculus underlying vertex operator algebra theory to study certain aspects of the classical umbral calculus and we introduce and study certain operators.

APPLICATIONS OF THE CLASSICAL UMBRAL CALCULUS 2 When I ﬁrst encountered umbral notation it seemed to me that this was all there was to it; it was simply a notation for dealing with exponential generating functions, or to put it bluntly, it was a method for avoiding the use of exponential generating functions when they really ought to be used.

Take a look at that book. It doesn't require a lot of apparatus. The paper by Roman and Rota, cited in the article, is the beginning of a technique for making the classical umbral calculus rigorous.

Umbral is derived from the Latin umbra, meaning "shadow".It is also the Spanish word for "threshold", and sometimes used as a surname in that language.
