Unsigned sequence gives number of undirected paths through K_n, and including paths with zero edges. - Thomas Anton, Jan 14 2021

FORMULA
a(n) = n*(1 + A000522(n-1))/2 for n > 0.
For the unsigned sequence, a(n) = n*(2*a(n-1) + 3 - n)/2, a(0)=0. - Emeric Deutsch, Oct 24 2001
a(n) = (-1)^(n-1)/2*floor(n!*exp(1) + n-1), n > 0. - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 17 2002
The defining generating function simplifies to x*(2+x)*exp(-x)/(2*(1+x)). - Emeric Deutsch, Nov 16 2007
E.g.f.: 1/2*U(0) where U(k)= 1 + x/(1 + 1/(x*(x+1) - 1 - x^2*(x+1)^2/(x*(x+1) + (k+1)/U(k+1)))); (continued fraction, 3rd kind, 4-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Nov 16 2012
