HW4 Q2a

If I’m not mistaken, p_0(x)=S(0,0)=0. But it seems like for the statement in (a) to be true for n=1,n=2 which I tried, p_0(x) should equal 1. Do you see what I am missing??

  1. S(0,0)=1 (bottom of page 73 of EC1).

  2. Does anyone have a tip on this problem? I’ve had tried induction but it is quite hard.

    if x is an integer it’s easy to show that P_{n+1}(x)=P_n(x)*(x-n).
