Coefficientwise total positivity of some matrices defined by linear recurrences

We exhibit a lower-triangular matrix of polynomials $T(a,c,d,e,f,g)$ in six indeterminates that appears empirically to be coefficientwise totally positive, and which includes as a special case the Eulerian triangle. We prove the coefficientwise total positivity of $T(a,c,0,e,0,0)$, which includes the reversed Stirling subset triangle.

Total positivity of some polynomial matrices that enumerate labeled trees and forests, I. Forests of rooted labeled trees
We consider the lower-triangular matrix of generating polynomials that enumerate k-component forests of rooted trees on the vertex set [n] according to the number of improper edges (generalizationsExpand
Trees, Forests, and Total Positivity: I. $q$-Trees and $q$-Forests Matrices
We consider matrices with entries that are polynomials in $q$ arising from natural $q$-generalisations of two well-known formulas that count: forests on $n$ vertices with $k$ components; and rootedExpand
