COMMENTS

Previous name was: Form the iterate f[ f[ .. f[ 1 ] ] ] or f^n [ 1 ] with f[ stuff ] defined as ( stuff - Integrate[ stuff over x ] ), set x=1 and multiply by n!.

This presumably means the recurrence  L(n+1,x) = L(n,x) - integral_(t=0}^x L(n,t) dt with L(0,x) = 1, which is satisfied by the Laguerre polynomials. - Robert Israel, Jan 09 2015

FORMULA

From C. Ronaldo (aga_new_ac(AT)hotmail.com), Dec 19 2004: (Start)

E.g.f.: exp(x/(x-1))/(1-x).

a(n) = 2*(n-1)*a(n-1)-(n-1)^2*a(n-2) for n>1, a(0)=1, a(1)=0.

a(n) = n!*Laguerre(n, 1). (End)

a(n) = n!*Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k*Binomial(n,k)/k!. - Benedict W. J. Irwin, Apr 20 2017

EXAMPLE

The first few f[ x ] are 1, 1 - x, 1 - 2*x + x^2/2, 1 - 3*x + (3*x^2)/2 - x^3/6, giving the values 1, 0, -1/2, -2/3, ...

MAPLE

seq(coeff(series(exp(x/(x-1))/(1-x), x, 50), x, i)*i!, i=0..20);

A009940:=proc(n) options remember: if n<2 then RETURN([1, 0][n+1]) else RETURN(2*(n-1)*A009940(n-1)-(n-1)^2*A009940(n-2)) fi: end; seq(A009940(n), n=0..20);

with(orthopoly): seq(n!*L(n, 1), n=0..20); # C. Ronaldo, Dec 19 2004
