Abstract
We analyze congruence classes of S(n,k), the Stirling numbers of the second kind, modulo powers of 2. This analysis provides insight into a conjecture posed by Amdeberhan, Manna and Moll, which those authors established for k at most 5. We provide a framework that can be used to justify the conjecture by computational means, which we then complete for values of k between 5 and 20.
