FORMULA

a(n) = 2*(2*n+1)*(n-1) (for n>1) follows from 1/e = sum ((1/(2*n)! - 1/(2*n+1)!). - Helena Verrill (verrill(AT)math.lsu.edu), Jan 19 2004

a(1)=3, a(2)=10, a(1)=28, a(2)=54, a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, May 10 2012

From G. C. Greubel, Dec 27 2016: (Start)

G.f.: x*(3 + x + 7*x^2 - 3*x^3)/(1-x)^3.

E.g.f.: 2 + 3*x + 2*2*x^2 + x - 1)*exp(x). (End)
