FORMULA
E.g.f.: exp(x) * (tan(x) + sec(x)).
Limit_{n->infinity} 2*n*a(n-1)/a(n) = Pi; lim_{n->infinity} a(n)*a(n-2)/a(n-1)^2 = 1 + 1/(n-1). - Gerald McGarvey, Aug 13 2004
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n, k)*A000111(n-k). a(2*n) = A000795(n) + A009747(n), a(2*n+1) = A002084(n) + A003719(n). - Philippe Deléham, Aug 28 2005
a(n) = A227862(n, n * (n mod 2)). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 01 2013
G.f.: E(0)*x/(1-x)/(1-2*x) + 1/(1-x), where E(k) = 1 - x^2*(k + 1)*(k + 2)/(x^2*(k + 1)*(k + 2) - 2*(x*(k + 2) - 1)*(x*(k + 3) - 1)/E(k+1) ); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 16 2014
a(n) ~ n! * exp(Pi/2) * 2^(n+2) / Pi^(n+1). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jun 12 2015
