COMMENTS

Compare the g.f. to the LambertW identity:

1 = Sum_{n>=0} 2*(3*n+2)^(n-1) * exp(-(3*n+2)*x) * x^n/n!.

FORMULA

a(n) = 1/n! * Sum_{k=0..n} 2*(-1)^(n-k)*binomial(n,k) * k^n * (3*k+2)^(n-1).

a(n) = 1/n! * [x^n] Sum_{k>=0} 2*k^k*(3*k+2)^(k-1)*x^k / (1 + k*(3*k+2)*x)^(k+1).

a(n) = [x^n] 1 + x*(1+2*x)^(n-1) / Product_{k=1..n} (1 - 3*k*x).

a(n) = [x^n] 1 + x*(1-2*x)^(n-1) / Product_{k=1..n} (1 - (3*k+2)*x).

a(n) ~ 2^(2*n-1/6) * 3^(n-1) * n^(n-3/2) / (sqrt(Pi*(1-c)) * exp(n) * (2-c)^(n-1) * c^(n+1/3)), where c = -LambertW(-2*exp(-2)) = 0.4063757399599599... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 22 2014

EXAMPLE

O.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x + 22*x^2 + 602*x^3 + 26656*x^4 + 1643054*x^5 + ...

where

A(x) = 1 + 2*1^1*5^0*x*exp(-1*5*x) + 2*2^2*8^1*exp(-2*8*x)*x^2/2! + 2*3^3*11^2*exp(-3*11*x)*x^3/3! + 2*4^4*14^3*exp(-4*14*x)*x^4/4! + 2*5^5*17^4*exp(-5*17*x)*x^5/5! + ...

simplifies to a power series in x with integer coefficients.
