 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Inverse binomial transform of A048573. This is an example of the case k=-1 of sequences with recurrences a(n) = k*a(n-1) + (k+3)*a(n-2) - (2*k+2)*a(n-3). The case k=1 is covered, for example, by A097163, A135520, A136326, A136336, or A137208. Sequences with k=2 are A094554 and A094555. Sequences with k=3 are A084175, A108924, and A139818.
