Discipline: Mathematics



In this note, a q-analogue of the non-central Stirling numbers of the first kind is derived by obtaining the limit of the exponential factorial. As a consequence, some combinatorial properties, such as triangular recurrence relation, vertical recurrence relation, horizontal recurrence relation and horizontal generating function are established. Moreover, the q-analogue is given interpretation in the counting of A-tableau, a special type of 0-1 tableau.
