COMMENTS

The asymptotic expansion of the higher order exponential integral E(x,m=3,n=4) ~ exp(-x)/x^3*(1 - 15/x + 179/x^2 - 2070/x^3 + 24574/x^4 - 305956/x^5 + ... ) leads to the sequence given above. See A163931 and A163932 for more information. - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 20 2009

FORMULA

a(n) = sum((-1)^(n+k)*binomial(k+2, 2)*4^k*stirling1(n+2, k+2), k=0..n). - Borislav Crstici (bcrstici(AT)etv.utt.ro), Jan 26 2004

E.g.f.: (1-9*log(1-x)+10*log(1-x)^2)/(1-x)^6. - Vladeta Jovovic, Mar 01 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-2) = |f(n,2,4)|, for n>=2. - Milan Janjic, Dec 21 2008

PROG
