COMMENTS

Unsigned sequence satisfies a(n)=n*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-(n-2)*a(n-3), a(0)=1,a(1)=1,a(2)=3 with e.g.f. cosh(z)/(1-z). - Mario Catalani (mario.catalani(AT)unito.it), Feb 07 2003

(-1)^n*(A000166(n) + A000522(n))/2 = this_sequence, (-1)^n*(A000166(n) - A000522(n))/2 = A009628(n).

The positive sequence has e.g.f. cosh(x)/(1-x), with a(n)=sum{k=0..floor(n/2), binomial(n,2k)(n-2k)!}. It is the mean of the binomial and inverse binomial transforms of n!. - Paul Barry, May 01 2005

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1)^n*floor(n!*cosh(1)). - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 10 2002

a(n) = (1+(-1)^n)/2-n*a(n-1). - Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 19 2003

a(n) = (-1)^n * n! * sum{k=0, [n/2], 1/(2k)!}.

a(n) = [n!*(-1)^n]*{1+(1/2)*{Sum[k=1..n][1/k! ]+Sum[j=1..n][(1/j!)*(-1)^j]}}, with n>=0. [Paolo P. Lava, Jan 14 2009]

E.g.f.: U(0)/(1+x) where U(k)= 1 + x^2/((4*k+1)*(4*k+2) - x^2*(4*k+1)*(4*k+2)/(x^2 + (4*k+3)*(4*k+4)/U(k+1))) ; (continued fraction, 3rd kind, 3-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 22 2012

a(n) = (-1)^n*(exp(1)*Gamma(1+n,1) + exp(-1)*Gamma(1+n,-1))/2 - Peter Luschny, Dec 18 2017
