%N a(n) = (n+2)*a(n-1) + (-1)^n.

%C a(n) is a function of the subfactorials... a(n) = A000166(n+2) - 1/3*(n+2)! /Q, i.e., ... 1 = 9 - 24/3, 4 = 44 - 120/3, 25 = 265 - 720/3 ... - _Gary Detlefs_, Dec 17 2009

%F From _Robert Israel_, Feb 28 2017: (Start)

%F a(n) = Gamma(n+3, -1)/e - (n+2)!/3.

%F a(n) ~ (1/e - 1/3) sqrt(2 Pi) n^(n+5/2) exp(-n). (End)
