comment What's the name of $\sum_{k = 0}^{n} (-1)^k {n \choose k} (n-k)^w$?
@PedroTamaroff: thanks! Your comment pointed me in the right direction. According the the Wikipedia page on the I-E principle, the expression I found equals $n! \, S(w, n)$, where $S(w, n)$ is a "Stirling number of the second kind"...
