COMMENTS

The first term a(0) would be a fraction if the floor( ... ) function would be omitted ; for n>=2, all terms from A003422 are even. - M. F. Hasler, Dec 16 2007

FORMULA

a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=2, a(n)=(n+1)*a(n-1)-n*a(n-2). - Benoit Cloitre, Sep 07 2002

a(0) = 0, a(n) = (1/2)*Floor[1+1*Floor[1+2*Floor[1+....+(n-1)*Floor[1+n*Floor[1]]]....]. [From Joseph E. Cooper III (easonrevant(AT)gmail.com), Aug 19 2008]

G.f.: G(0)/(1-x)/2 -1/2, where G(k)= 1 + (2*k + 1)*x/( 1 - 2*x*(k+1)/(2*x*(k+1) + 1/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 24 2013

G.f.: A(x)= ( Sum_{n>=0}*x^n*n!)/(2-2*x) - 1/2 = G(0)/(4*(1-x)) -1/2, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - x/(x + 1/(k+1)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jun 02 2013

a(n) ~ n!/2. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 10 2013

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) a(n):= `if`(n<3, n, (n+1)*a(n-1)-n*a(n-2)) end:
