%N Numerator of (n+2)^(n+2)/(n+1)^(n+1) - (n+1)^(n+1)/n^n.

%C (n+2)^(n+2)/(n+1)^(n+1) - (n+1)^(n+1)/n^n converges very rapidly to e.

%C These can be prime, as is the case for a(0) = 3, a(1) = 11, a(4) = 18839, a(8) = 37582455061871. These are always odd, just as all but the first denominator of A090205 is even. - _Jonathan Vos Post_, Oct 19 2005
