COMMENTS
Number of partitions of n+3 with at least one singleton and with the smallest element in a singleton equal to 3. Alternatively, number of partitions of n+3 with at least one singleton and with the largest element in a singleton equal to n+1. - Olivier GERARD, Oct 29 2007
Out of the A005493(n) set partitions with a specific two elements clustered separately, number that have a different set of two elements clustered separately. - Andrey Goder (andy.goder(AT)gmail.com), Dec 17 2007

FORMULA
a(n) = A005493(n) - A005493(n-1).
E.g.f.: exp(exp(x)-1)*(exp(2*x)-exp(x)+1). - Vladeta Jovovic, Feb 11 2003
a(n) = A000110(n) - 2*A000110(n-1) + A000110(n-2). - Andrey Goder (andy.goder(AT)gmail.com), Dec 17 2007
G.f.: G(0) where G(k) = 1 - 2*x*(k+1)/((2*k+1)*(2*x*k+2*x-1) - x*(2*k+1)*(2*k+3)*(2*x*k+2*x-1)/(x*(2*k+3) - 2*(k+1)*(2*x*k+3*x-1)/G(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 19 2012
G.f.: 1 - G(0) where G(k) = 1 - 1/(1-k*x-2*x)/(1-x/(x-1/G(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 17 2013
G.f.: 1 - 1/x + (1-x)^2/x/(G(0)-x) where G(k) = 1 - x*(k+1)/(1 - x/G(k+1) ); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 26 2013
G.f.: G(0)*(1-1/x) where G(k) = 1 - 1/(1-x*(k+1))/(1-x/(x-1/G(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Feb 07 2013
a(n) ~ n^2 * Bell(n) / LambertW(n)^2 * (1 - 2*LambertW(n)/n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 28 2021
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..2^n - 1} b(k) for n >= 0 where b(2n+1) = b(n) + b(A025480(n-1)), b(2n) = b(n - 2^f(n)) + b(2n - 2^f(n)) + b(A025480(n-1)) for n > 0 with b(0) = b(1) = 1 and where f(n) = A007814(n). Also b((4^n - 1)/3) = A141154(n+1). - Mikhail Kurkov, Jan 27 2022
