COMMENTS

a(n)*(-1)^n, n>=0, gives the z-sequence for the Sheffer triangle A049458 ((signed) 3-restricted Stirling1 numbers), which is the inverse triangle of A143495 with offset [0,0] (3-restricted Stirling2 numbers). See the W. Lang link under A006232 for a- and z-sequences for Sheffer matrices. The a-sequence for each (signed) r-restricted Stirling1 Sheffer triangle is A027641/A027642 (Bernoulli numbers). - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 10 2011
