 A185040 O.g.f.: 1/(1-x) * Sum_{n>=0} 1/(1-(n+1)*x)^n * x^n/n! * exp(-x/(1-(n+1)*x)). 2

%N O.g.f.: 1/(1-x) * Sum_{n>=0} 1/(1-(n+1)*x)^n * x^n/n! * exp(-x/(1-(n+1)*x)).

%C Compare g.f. to the curious identity:

%C 1/(1+x^2) = Sum_{n>=0} (1-(n+1)*x)^n * x^n/n! * exp(-x*(1-(n+1)*x)).

%F Binomial transform of A218667.

%e O.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 5*x^3 + 15*x^4 + 54*x^5 + 220*x^6 +...

%e where the o.g.f. equals the series:

%e A(x)*(1-x) = exp(-x/(1-x)) + x/(1-2*x)*exp(-x/(1-2*x)) + x^2/(1-3*x)^2/2!*exp(-x/(1-3*x)) + x^3/(1-4*x)^3/3!*exp(-x/(1-4*x)) + x^4/(1-5*x)^4/4!*exp(-x/(1-5*x)) + x^5/(1-6*x)^5/5!*exp(-x/(1-6*x)) + x^6/(1-7*x)^6/6!*exp(-x/(1-7*x)) +...

%e which simplifies to a power series in x with integer coefficients.

%o (PARI) {a(n)=local(A=1+x, X=x+x*O(x^n)); A=1/(1-x)*sum(k=0, n, 1/(1-(k+1)*X)^k*x^k/k!*exp(-X/(1-(k+1)*X))); polcoeff(A, n)}

%o for(n=0, 30, print1(a(n), ", "))

%Y Cf. A218667.

%K nonn
