a(n+1) is the number of spanning trees of the graph T_n, where T_n is a sequence of n triangles, where adjacent triangles share an edge.  Kevin Long, May 07 2018
a(n) is the number of ways to partition [n] such that each block is a run of consecutive numbers, and each block has a fixed point, e.g., for n=3, 123 with 1 and 3 as fixed points is valid, but 132 is not valid as 1 and 3 do not form a run. Consequently, a(n) also counts the spanning trees of the graph given by taking a path with n vertices and adding another vertex adjacent to all of them.  Kevin Long, May 11 2018
From Wolfdieter Lang, May 31 2018: (Start)
The preceding comment can be paraphrased as follows. a(n) is the row sum of the array A305309 for n >= 1. The array A305309(n, k) gives the sum of the products of the block lengths of the set partition of [n] := {1, 2, ..., n} with A048996(n, k) blocks of consecutive numbers, corresponding to the compositions obtained from the kth partition of n in AbramowitzStegun order. See the comments and examples at A305309.
{a(n)} also gives the infinite sequence of nonnegative numbers k for which k * k*phi < 1/sqrt(5), where the irrational number phi = A001622 (golden section), and x is the absolute value of the difference between x and the nearest integer. See, e.g., the Havil reference, pp. 171172. (End)

a(n)^2 = Sum_{k=1..n} a(2k1). This is a property of any sequence S(n) such that S(n) = B*S(n1)  S(n2) with S(0) = 0 and S(1) = 1 including {0,1,2,3,...} where B = 2.  Kenneth J Ramsey, Mar 23 2008
a(n) = 1/sqrt(5)*(phi^(2*n+2)  phi^(2*n2)), where phi = (1+sqrt(5))/2, the golden ratio.  Udita Katugampola (SIU), Sep 24 2008
If p[i] = i and if A is Hessenberg matrix of order n defined by: A[i,j] = p[ji+1], (i<=j), A[i,j] = 1, (i = j+1), and A[i,j] = 0 otherwise. Then, for n >= 1, a(n) = det A.  Milan Janjic, May 02 2010
If p[i] = Stirling2(i,2) and if A is the Hessenberg matrix of order n defined by: A[i,j] = p[ji+1], (i<=j), A[i,j] = 1, (i = j+1), and A[i,j] = 0 otherwise. Then, for n >= 1, a(n1) = det A.  Milan Janjic, May 08 2010
a(n) = F(2*n+10) mod F(2*n+5).
a(n) = 1 + a(n1) + Sum_{i=1..n1} a(i), with a(0)=0.  Gary W. Adamson, Feb 19 2011
a(n) is equal to the permanent of the (n1) X (n1) Hessenberg matrix with 3's along the main diagonal, i's along the superdiagonal and the subdiagonal (i is the imaginary unit), and 0's everywhere else.  John M. Campbell, Jun 09 2011
a(n), n > 1 is equal to the determinant of an (nx) X (n1) tridiagonal matrix with 3's in the main diagonal, 1's in the super and subdiagonals, and the rest zeros.  Gary W. Adamson, Jun 27 2011
a(n) = b such that Integral_{x=0..Pi/2} sin(n*x)/(3/2cos(x)) dx = c + b*log(3).  Francesco Daddi, Aug 01 2011

G.f.: A(x) = x/(13*x+x^2) = G(0)/sqrt(5); where G(k)= 1 (a^k)/(1  b*x/(b*x  2*(a^k)/G(k+1))), a = (73*sqrt(5))/2, b = 3+sqrt(5), if x<(3sqrt(5))/2 = 0.3819660...; (continued fraction 3 kind, 3step ).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jun 25 2012
Product_{n>=1} (1 + 1/a(n)) = 1 + sqrt(5).  Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012
Product_{n>=2} (1  1/a(n)) = 1/6*(1 + sqrt(5)).  Peter Bala, Dec 23 2012
G.f.: x/(12*x) + x^2/(12*x)/(Q(0)x) where Q(k) = 1  x/(x*k + 1 )/Q(k+1); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Feb 23 2013
G.f.: G(0)/2  1, where G(k)= 1 + 1/( 1  x/(x + (1x)^2/G(k+1) )); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jul 16 2013
G.f.: x*G(0)/(23*x), where G(k)= 1 + 1/( 1  x*(5*k9)/(x*(5*k4)  6/G(k+1) )); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jul 17 2013
Sum_{n>=1} 1/(a(n) + 1/a(n)) = 1. Compare with A001519, A049660 and A049670.  Peter Bala, Nov 29 2013
a(n) = U(n1,3/2) where U(n1,x) is Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind.  Milan Janjic, Jan 25 2015
The o.g.f. A(x) satisfies A(x) + A(x) + 6*A(x)*A(x) = 0. The o.g.f. for A004187 equals A(sqrt(x))*A(sqrt(x)).  Peter Bala, Apr 02 2015
For n > 1, a(n) = (3*F(n+1)^2 + 2*F(n2)*F(n+1)  F(n2)^2)/4.  J. M. Bergot, Feb 16 2016
For n > 3, a(n) = floor(MA)  4 for n even and floor(MA) + 5 for n odd. MA is the maximum area of a quadrilateral with lengths of sides in order L(n), L(n), F(n3), F(n+3), with L(n)=A000032(n). The ratio of the longer diagonal to the shorter approaches 5/3.  J. M. Bergot, Feb 16 2016
a(n+1) = Sum_{j=0..n} Sum_{k=0..j} binomial(nj,k)*binomial(j,k)*2^(jk).  Tony Foster III, Sep 18 2017
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n1} Sum_{i=0..n1} C(k+i,ki).  Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 21 2017
a(n) = Sum_{k=1..A000041(n)} A305309(n, k), n >= 1. Also row sums of triangle A078812. Wolfdieter Lang, May 31 2018


EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 3*x^2 + 8*x^3 + 21*x^4 + 55*x^5 + 144*x^6 + 377*x^7 + 987*x^8 + ...
a(3)= 8 because there are exactly 8 idempotent orderpreserving full transformations on a 3element chain, namely: (1,2,3)>(1,1,1),(1,2,3)>(2,2,2),(1,2,3)>(3,3,3),(1,2,3)>(1,1,3),(1,2,3)>(2,2,3),(1,2,3)>(1,2,2),(1,2,3)>(1,3,3),(1,2,3)>(1,2,3)mappings are coordinatewise.  Abdullahi Umar, Sep 08 2008
