FORMULA

b(0) = -1, b(n) = (-1/n)*sum_{k=1..n} b(n-k)/(k+1).

EXAMPLE

Fractions begin -1, 1/2, 1/24, 1/48, 73/5760, 11/1280, 3625/580608, ...

MATHEMATICA

b[0] = -1; b[n_] := b[n] = (-1/n)*Sum[b[n - k]/(k + 1), {k, 1, n}]; Table[b[n] // Denominator, {n, 0, 20}]

CoefficientList[Series[-(1 - x)^((x - 1)/x)/E, {x, 0, 20}], x] // Denominator (* communicated by Eric W. Weisstein, Apr 13 2018, based on result by Michael Trott *)
