FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n}(k!*fibonacci(k+1)*stirling2(n, k).

E.g.f.: 1/(1 + U(0)) where U(k)= 1 - 2^k/(1 - x/(x - (k+1)*2^k/U(k+1) ));(continued fraction 3rd kind, 3-step ). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 05 2012

a(n) ~ 2*n! / ((5+sqrt(5)) * log((1+sqrt(5))/2)^(n+1)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 04 2015

a(n) = (-1)^(n+1)*(Li_{-n}(1-phi)*phi + Li_{-n}(phi)/phi)/sqrt(5), where Li_n(x) is the polylogarithm, phi=(1+sqrt(5))/2 is the golden ratio. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Oct 30 2015

CROSSREFS

John W. Layman observes that this is also Sum (-2)^k*binomial(n, k)*b(n-k), where b() = A005923.
