Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..[n/2]} (n-k)! * Stirling2(n, n-k) * binomial(n-k, k) * 2^(n-2*k).

a(n) ~ c * d^n * n! / sqrt(n), where d = 2*r^2/(2*r-1) + (2*r-1)*r/(2*(1-r)) = 3.36074272900128370245729732045120604190737486342012..., where r = 0.80276231206743119172295651485200150958072822575039811732... is the root of the equation (r + (1-2*r)^2/(4*(1-r))) * LambertW(-exp(-1/r)/r) = -1, and c = 0.533888836381702228067397487907088688592161798613354080016... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 05 2014

EXAMPLE

O.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x + 9*x^2 + 72*x^3 + 830*x^4 + 12420*x^5 + 228060*x^6 +...

where

A(x) = 1 + x*(2+x)/(1+x)^4 + 2^2*x^2*(2+2*x)^2/(1+2*x)^6 + 3^3*x^3*(2+3*x)^3/(1+3*x)^8 + 4^4*x^4*(2+4*x)^4/(1+4*x)^10 + 5^5*x^5*(2+5*x)^5/(1+5*x)^12 +...

PROG

(PARI) /* From formula for a(n): */
