FORMULA

a(n) = b(n)*(a(n-2) + a(n-3)) with b(n) = b(n-1) + k and k = 2.

a(n) = 2*n*(a(n-2) + a(n-3)) with a(0) = 0, a(1) = a(2) = 1 [Johannes W. Meijer, Jul 27 2011]

E.g.f.: Pi/(4*sqrt(2))*exp(x^2/2)*x*sqrt(1+x)*(BesselI(-1/4,1/2*(1+x)^2)*(2*BesselI(-3/4,1/2)-BesselI(1/4,1/2))+BesselI(1/4,1/2*(1+x)^2)*(BesselI(-1/4,1/2)-2*BesselI(3/4,1/2))). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Dec 28 2012

a(n) ~ sqrt(Pi)/8 * (2*BesselI(-3/4,1/2) - 2*BesselI(3/4,1/2) + BesselI(-1/4,1/2) - BesselI(1/4,1/2)) * 2^(n/2-1/4)*exp(sqrt(n)/sqrt(2)-n/2+3/8)*n^(n/2+1/4) * (1-47/(48*sqrt(2*n))). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Dec 28 2012
