Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

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. - Jean-François Alcover, Jul 25 2016
