FORMULA

Conjectured g.f.: (1 + x + 2*x^2 + 2*x^3 + 2*x^4 + 2*x^5 + 2*x^6 + x^7 + 2*x^8 + x^9)/((1 - x)*(1 - x^2)*(1 - x^8)).

Conjecture: a(n) = (8*n^2 + 15*n + 14 + (n + 2)*(-1)^n + (2 - 4*sqrt(2)*sin(Pi*n/4))*sin(Pi*n/2))/16.

From Peter Luschny, Oct 09 2017: (Start) Assuming the conjecture:

a(n) = n^2/2 + n + 1 - (n mod 2)*(1/2 + floor((n + 1)/8)).

a(2*n) = A001844(n) and a(2*n + 1) = A293296(n + 1).

Signature of the linear recurrence: {0, 2, 0, -1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, -2, 0, 1}. (End)

EXAMPLE

For n = 2, the 2nd derivative of x^(x^2) is 3*x^(x^2) + 2*x^(x^2)*log(x) + x^(x^2+2) + 4*x^(x^2+2)*log(x) + 4*x^(x^2+2)*log^2(x), so a(2) = 5.

MAPLE

a := n -> `if`(n=0, 1, nops(expand(diff(x^(x^2), x$n)))):

seq(a(n), n = 0..30); # Peter Luschny, Oct 08 2017
