FORMULA

E.g.f.: exp(-x-x^2).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} (-1)^(n-k)*k!*C(n, k)*C(n-k, k).

a(n) = -a(n-1)-2*(n-1)*a(n-2), a(0) = 1, a(1) = -1.

A000186(n) ~ n!^2*exp(1)^(-3)*(a(0) + a(1)/n + a(2)/(2*[n]_2) + ... + a(k)/(k!*[n]_k) + ...), where [n]_k = n*(n-1)*...*(n-k + 1), [n]_0 = 1. - Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 30 2001

a(n) = Sum{k=0..n, (-1)^(2*n-k)*C(k,n-k)*n!/k!}. - Paul Barry, Oct 08 2007, corrected by Altug Alkan, Oct 22 2015

Conjecture: a(n) +a(n-1) +2*(n-1)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

E.g.f.: 1 - x*(1 - E(0) )/(1+x) where E(k) = 1 - (1+x)/(k+1)/(1-x/(x+1/E(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 18 2013

E.g.f.: -x/Q(0) where Q(k) = 1 - (1+x)/(1 - x/(x - (k+1)/Q(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 06 2013

G.f.: 1/(x*Q(0)), where Q(k) = 1 + 1/x + 2*(k+1)/Q(k+1) ; (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 21 2013

a(n) = (-2)^n * U(-n/2, 1/2, 1/4), where U is the confluent hypergeometric function. - Benedict W. J. Irwin, Oct 17 2017
