Table of n, a(n) for n=1..11.

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1)^2+a(n-1)a(n-2)-a(n-2)^3 (valid for all n>3). - Ivan Sadofschi, Feb 22 2011

a(n) = a(n-1)^2+A074056(n-2) where A074056 is partial product of A057438. Close to a(n-1)^2+a(n-1)*0.365177806085453... and 1.1087260396143829635274191...^(2^n). - Henry Bottomley, Aug 14 2002

EXAMPLE

a(5) = a(1)*a(2)*a(3)*a(4)*(1/a(1) + 1/a(2) + 1/a(3) + 1/a(4)) = 1*1*2*5*(1 + 1 + 1/2 + 1/5) = 27.

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = Sum[1/a[n - k], {k, n - 1}] Product[a[n - k], {k, n - 1}]; Table[ a[n], {n, 11}] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jun 14 2005 *)
