FORMULA

For n>1, a(n) = (2^(n-1)-1)*a(n-1) + (-1)^(n-1). - Max Alekseyev, Feb 23 2012

a(n) = p(n-1)*sum((-1)^j/p(j), j=0..n-1), where p(0) = 1, p(k) = product(2^i-1, i=1..k) for k>0. - Emeric Deutsch, Jan 23 2005

MAPLE

p:=proc(n) if n=0 then 1 else product(2^i-1, i=1..n) fi end: a:=n->p(n-1)*sum((-1)^j/p(j), j=0..n-1): seq(a(n), n=1..17); # Emeric Deutsch, Jan 23 2005

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = (2^(n-1)-1)*a[n-1] + (-1)^(n-1); Array[a, 15] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Apr 05 2016, after Max Alekseyev *)
