Harvey P. Dale, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..400

FORMULA

G.f.: (1/G(0)-1)/x/2 where G(k)= 1 - 4*x*k - x^2*(2*k+1)*(2*k+2)/G(k+1); (continued fraction, 1-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jul 10 2012

a(n) ~ sqrt(2)*2^n*n^(n+1)/exp(n+1/2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 15 2013

E.g.f.: x*exp(-x)/(1-2*x)^(3/2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 23 2014

EXAMPLE

a(2)=4*(0+1)=4, a(3)=6*(4+1)=30, a(4)=8*(30+4)=272...
