FORMULA

a(n) = coefficient of y in sum_0^n sigma_{n, k}(n-k)!(y-1)^k on y where the sigma_{n, k} have generating function sigma(t, u)=(1-2t^2(u^2)-2t^2(1+t)u^3+3t^4(u^4))(1-tu)^(-1)(1-(1+2t)u-tu^2+t^3(u^3))^(-1). - Barbara Haas Margolius (margolius(AT)math.csuohio.edu) Feb 17 2001

MAPLE

seq(f(n, 1), n=5..30); # where code for f(n, k) is given in A000440 - Barbara Haas Margolius (margolius(AT)math.csuohio.edu) Feb 17 2001

MATHEMATICA

sigma[t_, u_] = (1 - 2 t^2 (u^2) - 2 t^2 (1 + t) u^3 + 3 t^4 (u^4)) (1 - t* u)^(-1) (1 - (1 + 2 t) u - t *u^2 + t^3 (u^3))^(-1); ds[t_, n_] := D[sigma[t, u], {u, n}] /. u -> 0; su[n_] := su[n] = Sum[ Coefficient[ds[t, n]/n!, t, j]*(n - j)!*(y - 1)^j, {j, 0, n}]; f[n_, k_] := Coefficient[su[n], y, k]; Table[f[n, 1], {n, 5, 23}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Sep 01 2011, after Maple prog. *)
