 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The asymptotic expansion of the higher order exponential integral E(x,m=3,n=2) ~ exp(-x)/x^3*(1 - 9/x + 71/x^2 - 580/x^3 + 5104/x^4 - 48860/x^5+ the sequence given above. See A163931 and A163932 for more information. - Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 20 2009 a(n-1) is equal to -1 times the coefficient of x of the characteristic polynomial of the n X n matrix whose (i,j)-entry is equal to i+3 if i=j and is equal to 1 otherwise. - John M.
