Table of n, a(n) for n=0..19.

FORMULA

a(n)=2*n!*sum(m=1..(n-1)/2, ((-1)^(n-1)*sum(j=0..m, binomial((n/2-m+j-1),j)*4^(m-j)*sum(i=0..j, (i-j)^(2*m)*binomial(2*j,i)*(-1)^(m+j-i))))/((n-2*m)*(2*m)!))+(-1)^(n-1)*n!/n. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Jun 16 2011

a(n) ~ (n-1)! * (-1)^(n+1) / r^n, where r = 0.7390851332151606416553120876738734040134117589... (see A003957) is the root of the equation cos(r) = r. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 24 2015
