 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS A054374 gives the discriminants of the Hermite polynomials in the conventional (physicists') normalization, and A002109 (this sequence) gives the discriminants of the Hermite polynomials in the (in my opinion more natural) probabilists' normalization. See refs Wikipedia and Szego, eq. (6.71.7). - Alan Sokal, Mar 02 2012 a(n) = (-1)^n/det(M_n) where M_n is the n X n matrix m(i,j) = (-1)^i/i^j. - Benoit Cloitre, May 28 2002 a(n) = determinant of the n X n matrix M(n) where m(i,j) = B(n,i,j) and B(n,i,x) denote the Bernstein polynomial: B(n,i,x) = binomial(n,i)*(1-x)^(n-i)*x^i. - Benoit Cloitre, Feb 02 2003 Partial products of A000312. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 07 2012 Number of trailing zeros (A246839) increases every 5 terms since the exponent of the factor 5 increases every 5 terms and the exponent of the factor 2 increases every 2 terms. - Chai Wah Wu, Sep 03 2014 Also the number of minimum distinguishing labelings in the n-triangular honeycomb rook graph. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jul 14 2017 Also shows up in a term in the solution to the generalized version of Raabe's integral. - Jibran Iqbal Shah, Apr 24 2021 REFERENCES Steven R.
