Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

From Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 20 2009: (Start)

The asymptotic expansion of the higher order exponential integral E(x,m=2,n=8) ~ exp(-x)/x^2*(1 - 17/x + 242/x^2 - 3382/x^3 + 48504/x^4 - 725592/x^5 + 11393808/x^6 - ...) leads to the sequence given above. See A163931 and A028421 for more information.

FORMULA

a(n) = A051379(n, 2)*(-1)^(n-1).

E.g.f.: -log(1-x)/(1-x)^8.

a(n) = n!*Sum_{k=0..n-1} ((-1)^k*binomial(-8,k)/(n-k)), for n>=1. - Milan Janjic, Dec 14 2008

a(n) = n!*[7]h(n), where [k]h(n) denotes the k-th successive summation of the harmonic numbers from 0 to n. - Gary Detlefs Jan 04 2011

Conjecture: a(n) +(-2*n-13)*a(n-1) +(n+6)^2*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Aug 04 2013

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := k + 7; t[n_] := Table[f[k], {k, 1, n}]
