COMMENTS

a(n) is the determinant of the n X n tridiagonal matrix M with m(i,j)=min(i,j).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..22.

FORMULA

E.g.f.: Exp[ArcTan[(-1+2z)/Sqrt[3]]/Sqrt[3]]*Exp[Pi/(6*Sqrt[3])]/Sqrt[1-z+ z^2]

MATHEMATICA

c=CoefficientList[Series[Exp[ArcTan[(-1+2z)/Sqrt[3]]/Sqrt[3]]*Exp[Pi/(6*Sqrt[3]]/Sqrt[1 - z + z^2], {z, 0, 25}], z]; For[n=0, n<26, n++; Print[c[[n]]*(n-1)! ]]
