    I think there's a mistake in the MathWorld formula the summation of n=0 should be k=0

    ##m(n) = 1/( n! ) + 1/( n! * (n-1)! ) + 1/( n! * (n-1)! * (n-2)! ) + ...##

    Thank you for your reply jedishrfu,
    The article seems related to multifactorials with k being the number of exclamation marks, such as 2 marks for doublefactorial and more by similar extension.
