fac·to·ri·al

(fak-tōr'ē-ăl),
1. Pertaining to a statistical factor or factors.
2. Of an integer, that integer multiplied by each smaller integer in succession down to one, written n!; for example, 5! equals 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 = 120.

In this section, we give an almost complete classification of the factorial functions and the structure of Eulerian Sheffer posets.
1 Characterization of the factorial functions and structure of Eulerian Sheffer posets of rank n [greater than or equal to] 5 for which B (3) = 3
1 Characterization of the factorial functions of Eulerian Sheffer posets of rank n [greater than or equal to] 5 for which B(3) = 3
In this subsection, we study the factorial functions of Eulerian Sheffer posets of rank n [greater than or equal to] 5 for which B(3) = 3
Let P and P' be two Eulerian Sheffer posets of rank 2m + 2, m [greater than or equal to] 2, such that their binomial factorial functions and coatom functions agree up to rank n [less than or equal to] 2m.
By substituting the values of the factorial functions, we have
Thus, the poset P has the same factorial functions as [C.
Classification of the factorial functions of Eulerian Sheffer posets of odd rank n = 2m + 1 [greater than or equal to] 5 with B(3) = 6 and D(3) = 8 remains open.
Is there a positive integer [alpha] such that the poset P has the same factorial functions as poset [Q.
Consequently the poset P has the following binomial and Sheffer factorial functions.
