FORMULA

a(n) = A102470(n+1)/2 for n > 0.

EXAMPLE

Sum_{k=0 to 6} 1/k! = 1957/720 and 720 = 6! = (2*3)!, so 3 is a member. But Sum_{k=0 to 12} 1/k! = 260412269/95800320 and 95800320 < 12! = (2*6)!, so 6 is not a member.

MATHEMATICA

fQ[n_] := (Denominator[Sum[1/k!, {k, 0, 2n}]] == (2n)!); Select[ Range[0, 204], fQ[ # ] &] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 15 2005 *)
