COMMENTS

2 followed by A065475, or A000027 with first and second term interchanged.
It can be observed that this sequence is an "autosequence", that is a sequence which is identical to its inverse binomial transform, except for signs. More precisely, it is an autosequence "of the second kind", since the main diagonal of the successive differences array is twice the first upper diagonal.  JeanFrançois Alcover, Jul 25 2016
