COMMENTS

The asymptotic expansion of the higher order exponential integral E(x,m=4,n=2) ~ exp(-x)/x^4*(1 - 14/x + 155/x^2 - 1665/x^3 + 18424/x^4 - 214676/x^5 + ...) leads to the sequence given above. See A163931 and A163934 for more information. - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 20 2009

FORMULA

E.g.f.: - log ( 1 - x )^3 / 6 ( x - 1 )^2.

a(n)=sum((-1)^(n+k)*binomial(k+3, 3)*2^k*stirling1(n+3, k+3), k=0..n). - Borislav Crstici (bcrstici(AT)etv.utt.ro), Jan 26 2004

If we define f(n,i,a)=sum(binomial(n,k)*stirling1(n-k,i)*product(-a-j,j=0..k-1),k=0..n-i), then a(n-3) = |f(n,3,2)|, for n>=3. [From Milan Janjic, Dec 21 2008]
