Table of n, a(n) for n=0..20.

FORMULA

a(n) = 3*floor(e*(n-1)!) - 1, n>1. - Gary Detlefs, Jun 10 2010

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x + 5*x^2 + 14*x^3 + 47*x^4 + 194*x^5 + 977*x^6 +...

x^2*A'(x) = 2*x^2 + 10*x^3 + 42*x^4 + 188*x^5 + 970*x^6 + 5862*x^7 +...

MATHEMATICA

a=2; lst={}; Do[a=n+a*(n-2); AppendTo[lst, a], {n, 0, 3*4!}]; lst (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Mar 16 2010 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=local(A=1+x+x*O(x^n)); for(i=1, n, A=1/(1-x+x*O(x^n))^2+x^2*deriv(A)); polcoeff(A, n)}
