FORMULA

Let b(n) satisfy (n-2)*b(n)-n*(n-2)*b(n-1)-n*b(n-2)=0; write b(n)=(n!/e^2)*(1+sum a_r/n^r, r=1..inf).

a(n) = n!*Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k*Stirling2(n,k)/k!. - Vladeta Jovovic, Jul 17 2006

E.g.f.: 1 + x*(1 - E(0) )/(1-x) where E(k) = 1 + 1/(1-x*(k+1))/(k+1)/(1-x/(x-1/E(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 19 2013

E.g.f.: 1 + x*(1 - S)/(1-x) where S=sum(k>=0, ( 1+1/(1-x-x*k)/(k+1) )*x^k/prod(i=0..k-1, (1-x-x*i)*(i+1) ) ). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 21 2013
