FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n + 1)*(n + 3)!/48.

Essentially Stirling numbers of second kind - see A028246.

If we define f(n,i,x) = Sum_{k=i..n} Sum_{j=i..k} binomial(k,j)*stirling1(n,k)*stirling2(j,i)*x^(k-j) then a(n-3) = (-1)^n*f(n,4,-3), (n>=4). - Milan Janjic, Mar 01 2009

E.g.f.: t*(3*t + 2)/(2*(t - 1)^6). - Ran Pan, Jul 10 2016

a(n) ~ sqrt(Pi/2)*exp(-n)*n^(n+1/2)*(n^5/24 + 85*n^4/288 + 5065*n^3/6912 + 955841*n^2/1244160 + 3710929*n/11943936). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 10 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 15*x^2 + 180*x^3 + 2100*x^4 + 25200*x^5 + 317520*x^6 + ...
