COMMENTS

Number of {12, 12*, 1*2, 21, 21*}avoiding signed permutations in the hyperoctahedral group.
a(n) is the hook product of the shape (n, 1).  Emeric Deutsch, May 13 2004
From Jaume Oliver Lafont, Dec 01 2009: (Start)
(1+(x1)*exp(x))/x = Sum_{k >= 1} x^k/a(k).
Setting x = 1 yields Sum_{k >= 1} 1/a(k) = 1. [Jolley eq 302] (End)
For n >= 2, a(n) is the size of the largest conjugacy class of the symmetric group on n + 1 letters. Equivalently, the maximum entry in each row of A036039.  Geoffrey Critzer, May 19 2013
In factorial base representation (A007623) the terms are written as: 10, 11, 110, 1100, 11000, 110000, ... From a(2) = 3 = "11" onward each term begins always with two 1's, followed by n2 zeros.  Antti Karttunen, Sep 24 2016
e is approximately a(n)/A000255(n1) for large n.  Dale Gerdemann, Jul 26 2019
a(n) is the number of permutations of [n+1] in which all the elements of [n] are cyclemates, that is, 1,..,n are all in the same cycle. This result is readily shown after noting that the elements of [n] can be members of a ncycle or an (n+1)cycle. Hence a(n)=(n1)!+n!. See an example below.  Dennis P. Walsh, May 24 2020

FORMULA

a(n) = (n+1)*(n1)!.
E.g.f.: x/(1x)  log(1x).  Ralf Stephan, Apr 11 2004
The sequence 1, 3, 8, ... has g.f. (1+xx^2)/(1x)^2 and a(n) = n!(n + 2  0^n) = n!A065475(n) (offset 0).  Paul Barry, May 14 2004
a(n) = (n+1)!/n.  Claude Lenormand (claude.lenormand(AT)free.fr), Aug 24 2003
Factorial expansion of 1: 1 = sum_{n > 0} 1/a(n) [Jolley eq 302].  Claude Lenormand (claude.lenormand(AT)free.fr), Aug 24 2003
a(1) = 2, a(2) = 3, a(n) = (n^2  n  2)*a(n2) for n >= 3.  Jaume Oliver Lafont, Dec 01 2009

G.f.: U(0) where U(k) = 1 + (k+1)/(1  x/(x + 1/U(k+1))) ; (continued fraction, 3step).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Sep 25 2012
G.f.: 2*(1+x)/x/G(0)  1/x, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1  x*(2*k+2)/(x*(2*k+2)  1 + x*(2*k+2)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 31 2013
a(n) = (n1)*a(n1) + (n1)!.  Bruno Berselli, Feb 22 2017
a(1)=2, a(2)=3, a(n) = (n1)*a(n1) + (n2)*a(n2).  Dale Gerdemann, Jul 26 2019
