Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

Extension of factorial(n) to factim(n,m) defined by the recurrence a(0)=1, a(n)=a(n-1)*(n+m*I). Hence n! = factim(n,0), while the current sequence lists the real parts of factim(n,1). The imaginary parts are in A231531 and squares of magnitudes are in A101686.

EXAMPLE

factim(5,1) = -90+190*I. Hence a(n) = -90.

PROG

(PARI) Factim(nmax, m)={local(a, k); a=vector(nmax); a[1]=1+0*I;

  for (k=2, nmax, a[k]=a[k-1]*(k-1+m*I); ); return(a); }

a = Factim(1000, 1); real(a)

CROSSREFS

Cf. A231531 (imaginary parts), A101686 (squares of magnitudes).
