Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..450

FORMULA

a(n) = n!*(1 - Sum_{k=0..floor(n/9)} (-1)^k/(k!*9^k); a(n)/n! is asymptotic to 1-e^(-1/9).

E.g.f.: (1-exp(-x^9/9))/(1-x). - Alois P. Heinz, Oct 11 2017

Conjectures from Stéphane Rézel, Nov 24 2019: (Start)

Recurrence: a(n) = n*a(n-1), for n > 9 and n !== 0 (mod 9);

for k > 1, a(9*k) = a(9*k-1)*S(k)/S(k-1) where S(k) = 9*k*S(k-1) - (-1)^k with S(1) = 1.

(End)

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = n! * (1 - sum(k=0, floor(n/9), (-1)^k/(k!*9^k) ) ); \\ Stéphane Rézel, Nov 24 2019
