COMMENTS

There is an explicit formula for the n-th term of this sequence (see Eq. (8.4) of Smith (1982)). It is conjectured that this gives the answer to a question of Manin about the dimension of a certain module associated with the free commutative Moufang loop with n generators. - N. J. A. Sloane, May 21 2014
