FORMULA

a(0) = 5 and a(n) = 4*E(n+3) - 4*E(n+1) for n >= 1, where E(j) = A000111(j) = j!*[x^j](sec(x) + tan(x)) are the up/down or Euler numbers. - Emeric Deutsch, May 15 2004

EXAMPLE

a(0)=5 because we have 51324, 51423, 52314, 52413 and 53412.

MAPLE

f:=sec(x)+tan(x): fser:=series(f, x=0, 35): E[0]:=1: for n from 1 to 40 do E[n]:=n!*coeff(fser, x^n) od: 5, seq(4*E[n-1]-4*E[n-3], n=5..23);

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = local(v=[1], t); if( n<0, 0, for(k=2, n+5, t=0; v = vector(k, i, if( i>1, t += v[k+1-i]))); v[5])}; /* Michael Somos, Feb 03 2004 */
