Let f(x) be a monic polynomial of degree n. Let u be any number and let m be the matrix of values f(u+ij) for i,j=1..n. Then the determinant of m is a(n).  T. D. Noe, Aug 23 2008
From Andrew Weimholt, Sep 23 2009: (Start)
Also, number of ways to assemble an nsimplex from n+1 labeled (n1)simplices with labeled vertices, where lefthanded and righthanded counterparts are considered equivalent.
For n=2, we are constructing a triangle from 3 labeled linesegments with labeled endpoints. Solutions which differ by a rotation or a reflection are considered equivalent. Because reflections are equivalent, there is only 1 way to order the linesegments, and each linesegment can be oriented in 2 ways, so the total number of solutions is 2^3 = 8. For n=3, we are constructing a tetrahedron from 4 labeled triangles with labeled vertices. Without loss of generality, we can pick one labeled triangle to serve as our face of reference. For this face, we do not care which side of the triangle will face the interior of the tetrahedron as this just translates into a reflection of the tetrahedron, nor do we care about which rotation we pick as these just translate into rotations of the tetrahedron. From this reference triangle, there are 6 (=3!) ways to assign the remaining triangles to the faces of the tetrahedron, and each triangle can be oriented in 6 (=3!) ways (we can pick which side of the triangle will face the interior of the tetrahedron, and we can pick from 3 rotations). This gives 6^4 solutions.
Cf. A165644 (same idea, but reflections are distinct). A165642 and A165643 are the corresponding sequences for cubes instead of simplices. (End)

FORMULA

a(n) = (n!)^(n+1) = a(n1) * n^n * n!.
a(n) = A000178(n)*A002109(n), i.e., product of superfactorials and hyperfactorials.  Henry Bottomley, Nov 13 2009
a(n) ~ (2*Pi)^((n+1)/2) * n^((n+1)*(2*n+1)/2) / exp(n^2 + n  1/12).  Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 10 2015
