FORMULA

From Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 23 2017: (Start)

a(n) = (3*n^2 + 3*n + 1)*a(n-1) - 3*n^4*a(n-2) + (n-1)^3*n^3*a(n-3).

a(n) ~ Pi * log(n)^2 * n^(2*n + 3) * (1 + 2*gamma/log(n) + (gamma^2 + Pi^2/6) / log(n)^2) / exp(2*n), where gamma is the Euler-Mascheroni constant (A001620). (End)

MATHEMATICA

T[n_, k_] := If[k <= n, (n-k+2)!^k*Sum[(-1)^(j+1)*Binomial[n-k+2, j]/j^k, {j, 1, n-k+2}], 0]; a[n_] := T[n+1, 2]; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 10}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Feb 08 2016, after Alois P. Heinz in A008969 *)
