COMMENTS

The asymptotic expansion of the higher order exponential integral E(x,m=5,n=5) ~ exp(-x)/x^5*(1 - 35/x + 835/x^2 - 17360/x^3 + 342769/x^4 - ...) leads to the sequence given above. See A163931 for E(x,m,n) information and A163932 for a Maple procedure for the asymptotic expansion. - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 20 2009

FORMULA

a(n) = sum((-1)^(n+k)*binomial(k+4, 4)*5^k*stirling1(n+4, k+4), k=0..n). - Borislav Crstici (bcrstici(AT)etv.utt.ro), Jan 26 2004

E.g.f.: (6-156*log(1-x)+753*log(1-x)^2-1066*log(1-x)^3+420*log(1-x)^4)/(6*(1-x)^9). - 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-4) = |f(n,4,5)|, for n>=4. - Milan Janjic, Dec 21 2008
