FORMULA

a(k)=1. a(n)=k*a(n-1)+A000110(n-1)-A102661(n-1,k-2), k=3. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 15 2008

MAPLE

(Maple program from R. J. Mathar):

A000110 := proc(n) combinat[bell](n) ; end:

A102661 := proc(n, k) add(combinat[stirling2](n, i), i=1..k) ; end:

A005001:=n->if n = 0 then 0; else add(combinat[bell](k), k=0..n); fi;

beta := proc(n, k) if k= 1 then A005001(n) ; elif k= n then 1 ; else k*beta(n-1, k)+A000110(n-1)-A102661(n-1, k-2) ; fi ; end:

A005003 := proc(n) beta(n, 3) ; end:

seq(A005003(n), n=3..30) ;
