COMMENTS

Permanent of upper right n X n corner of multiplication table (A003991). - Marc LeBrun, Dec 11 2003

a(n) is the number of set partitions of {1, 2, ..., 4n - 1, 4n} into blocks of size 4 in which the entries of each block mod 4 are distinct. For example, a(2) = 8 counts 1234-5678, 1678-2345, 1278-3456, 1346-2578, 1238-4567, 1467-2358, 1247-3568, 1368-2457. - David Callan, Mar 30 2007

a(n) is also the determinant of the symmetric n X n matrix M defined by M(i, j) = sigma_3(gcd(i, j)) for 1 <= i,j <= n, and n > 0, where sigma_3 is A001158. - Enrique Pérez Herrero, Aug 13 2011

FORMULA

a(n) = det(S(i+3, j), 1 <= i, j <= n), where S(n, k) are Stirling numbers of the second kind. - Mircea Merca, Apr 04 2013

From Karol A. Penson, Jul 28 2013: (Start)

G.f. of hypergeometric type: sum(a(n)*z^n/(n!)^3, n = 0..infinity) = 1/(1-z);

Integral representation as n-th moment of a positive function w(x) on a positive halfaxis (solution of the Stieltjes moment problem), in Maple notation:

a(n) = int(x^n*w(x), x = 0..infinity), n >= 0, where w(x) = MeijerG([[], []], [[0, 0, 0]], []], x), w(0) = infinity, limit(w(x), x = infinity) = 0.

w(x) is monotonically decreasing over (0, infinity). The Meijer G function above cannot be represented by any other known special function. This solution of the Stieltjes moment problem is not unique.

Asymptotics: a(n) -> (1/16)*sqrt(2)*Pi^(3/2)*(32*n^2 + 8*n + 1)*(n)^(-1/2+3*n)*exp(-3*n), for n -> infinity. (End)
