 OFFSET 0,6 LINKS FORMULA a(n) = sum{k=0..n-1, (-1)^k*T(n-1, k)*cos(Pi*(n-k-1)/2)}; T(n, k)=abs(A008276(n, k)). - Paul Barry, Apr 18 2005 abs(a(n)) = abs(Re(product((k+I), k=1..(n-1)))) with I^2=-1. Example: abs(a(9))=55900 and product((k+I), k=1..(9-1)) = - 55900 + 46800 I => abs(part real of "product((k+I), k=1..(9-1))") = 55900. - Yalcin Aktar, Jul 02 2005 a(n+2) = -(2n+1)*a(n+1)-(n^2+1)*a(n), a(0)=0, a(1)=1. E.g. a(8)=6160 and -13*a(7)-37*a(6)=6160 because a(7)=-730 and a(6)=90. - Remy Lachaud (pacifik31(AT)aol.com), Dec 25 2005 a(n) = sum_{k=0}^{n/2} stirling1(n,2k+1)*(-1)^k. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Aug 03 2010 MATHEMATICA CoefficientList[Series[Sin[Log[1+x]], {x, 0, 20}], x] * Range[0, 20]!
