FORMULA

a(n) = 5*A007531(n)*A001147(n-2)/(2*(2*n-5)). - Philippe Deléham, Jun 26 2006

a(3) = 15, a(n) = a(n-1)*n*(2*n-7)/(n-3). - Philippe Deléham, Sep 19 2006

From Petros Hadjicostas, May 12 2020: (Start)

a(n) = n! * Sum_{k=0..n-3} (-1)^k * 2^(2*k-n) * binomial(n-3, k) * binomial(2*n-2*k, n-3) * binomial(n-2*k+3, n-k) for n >= 3. [Special case of a formula by Comtet, but corrected]

a(n) = 20 * binomial(2*n-6, n-3) * n!/2^n for n >= 3. [Special case of a formula due to Reinhard Zumkeller]

a(n) = binomial(-1/2, 3) * binomial(-1/2, n-3) * (-1)^n * n! * 2^n for n >= 3. (End)

a(n) ~ sqrt(2)*(5/16)*(2*n/e)^n. - Peter Luschny, May 13 2020
