FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A199577(n,k), n>=0.

From Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 12 2011 (Start)

E.g.f. from A199577 with x=1, z->x:

g(x) = -x*exp(-1/(1+x))*(Ei(1,-1/(1+x))-Ei(1,-1))/(1+x)^3 + 1/(1+x)^2, with the exponential integral Ei. In order to obtain the series use first Ei(1,-y/(1+x))-Ei(1,-y), and put y=1 after the expansion.

This e.g.f. satisfies the homogeneous ordinary second order differential equation (1+x)^2*(d^2/dx^2)g(x)+(4+5*x)*(d/dx)g(x)+4*g(x) = 0, with g(0)=1 and (d/dx)g(x)|_{x=0}=-2.

This e.g.f. is equivalent to the recurrence relation:

a(n) = -2*n*a(n-1) - n^2*a(n-2),  a(-1)=0, a(0)=1.

(End)

The conjecture on the alternating row sums has been proved by Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 12 2011
