COMMENTS
a(n)*(-1)^n, n>=0, gives the z-sequence for the Sheffer triangle A049458 ((signed) 3-restricted Stirling1 numbers), which is the inverse triangle of A143495 with offset [0,0] (3-restricted Stirling2 numbers). See the W. Lang link under A006232 for a- and z-sequences for Sheffer matrices. The a-sequence for each (signed) r-restricted Stirling1 Sheffer triangle is A027641/A027642 (Bernoulli numbers). - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 10 2011

FORMULA
From Michael Somos: (Start)
G.f.: (3 -12*x +11*x^2)/(1 -6*x +11*x^2 -6*x^3).
a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 2. (End)
E.g.f.: exp(x) + exp(2*x) + exp(3*x). - Mohammad K. Azarian, Dec 26 2008
a(0)=3, a(1)=6, a(2)=14, a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 11*a(n-2) + 6*a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Apr 30 2011
a(n) = A007689(n) + 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 01 2012
From Kai Wang, May 18 2020: (Start)
a(n) = 3*A000392(n+3) - 12*A000392(n+2) + 11*A000392(n+1).
A000392(n) = (3*a(n+1) - 12*a(n) + 10*a(n-1))/2. (End)
