COMMENTS

It is striking that the coefficients of o.g.f. A(x) consist entirely of integers.

FORMULA

a(n) ~ sqrt(1-c) * 2^(2*n - 1) * n^(n - 1/2) / (sqrt(Pi) * c^(n - 1/2) * (2-c)^n * exp(n)), where c = -A226775 = -LambertW(-2*exp(-2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 31 2020

EXAMPLE

O.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x^2 + 24*x^3 + 436*x^4 + 10656*x^5 + 328112*x^6 + 12183456*x^7 + 529242224*x^8 + 26309617536*x^9 + 1472135847072*x^10 + ...

ILLUSTRATION OF DEFINITION.

The table of coefficients of x^k/k! in exp(n*(n-1)*x) / A(x) begins:

n=2: [1, 2, 0, -160, -11600, -1376928, -250428416, -64479262720, ...];

n=3: [1, 6, 32, 0, -13392, -1630944, -286447104, -71981250048, ...];

n=4: [1, 12, 140, 1440, 0, -1916928, -351444096, -85338800640, ...];

n=5: [1, 20, 396, 7616, 128512, 0, -417488000, -107269127680, ...];

n=6: [1, 30, 896, 26496, 760752, 19101600, 0, -128348167680, ...];

n=7: [1, 42, 1760, 73440, 3034800, 121743072, 4260708864, 0, ...];

n=8: [1, 56, 3132, 174800, 9716608, 535021056, 28597069696, 1331047703552, 0, ...]; ...

in which the main diagonal is all zeros after the initial term, illustrating that [x^n] exp( n*(n-1)*x ) / A(x) = 0 for n>=0.

LOGARITHMIC DERIVATIVE.

The logarithmic derivative of A(x) yields the o.g.f. of A304316:

A'(x)/A(x) = 4*x + 72*x^2 + 1736*x^3 + 53040*x^4 + 1961728*x^5 + 85062432*x^6 + 4225904800*x^7 + 236455369344*x^8 + 14705880874944*x^9 + 1005982098054912*x^10 + ... + A304316(n)*x^n + ...

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = my(A=[1]); for(i=1, n, A=concat(A, 0); m=#A; A[m] = Vec( exp(x*(m-1)*(m-2) +x*O(x^m)) / Ser(A) )[m] ); A[n+1]}

for(n=0, 25, print1( a(n), ", "))
