Some Explanations of Dobinski's Formula
The geometric, algebraic, and combinatorial explanations of Dobinski's formula are presented by mixed volumes of compact convex sets, Möbius inversion, difference operator, and species. The employed method may be useful in proving some other combinatorial identities.
