FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n+4)!!/4!!; e.g.f.: 1/(1-2*x)^3.

a(n) ~ 2^(-1/2)*Pi^(1/2)*n^(5/2)*2^n*e^-n*n^n*{1 + 37/12*n^-1 + ...}. - Joe Keane (jgk(AT)jgk.org), Nov 23 2001

a(n) = (n+2)!*2^(n-1). - Zerinvary Lajos, Sep 23 2006. [corrected by Gary Detlefs, Apr 29 2019]

a(n) = 2^n*A001710(n+2). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 22 2008

From Peter Bala, May 26 2017: (Start)

a(n+1) = (2*n + 6)*a(n) with a(0) = 1.

O.g.f. satisfies the Riccati differential equation 2*x^2*A(x)' = (1 - 6*x)*A(x) - 1 with A(0) = 1.

G.f. as an S-fraction: A(x) = 1/(1 - 6*x/(1 - 2*x/(1 - 8*x/(1 - 4*x/(1 - 10*x/(1 - 6*x/(1 - ... - (2*n + 4)*x/(1 - 2*n*x/(1 - ...))))))))) (by Stokes 1982).

Reciprocal as an S-fraction: 1/A(x) = 1/(1 + 6*x/(1 - 8*x/(1 - 2*x/(1 - 10*x/(1 - 4*x/(1 - 12*x/(1 - 6*x/(1 - ... - (2*n + 6)*x/(1 - 2*n*x/(1 - ...)))))))))). (End)

a:= proc(n) option remember; `if`(n=0, 1, 2*(n+2)*a(n-1)) end:
