FORMULA

E.g.f.: cos(x)^(-x).

a(n) ~ (2*n/Pi)^(n+Pi/2)*sqrt(2*Pi/n)*exp(-n)/Gamma(Pi/2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 25 2013

a(n) = (-1)^n * A215347(n) = |A215347(n)|. - Robert Israel, Aug 28 2015

MAPLE

a:= n-> n! * coeff(series(cos(x)^(-x), x, n+1), x, n):

seq(a(n), n=0..30);  # Alois P. Heinz, Aug 18 2012
