%F E.g.f.: (-2-exp(x)+x*exp(x))/(-1+x).

%F Recurrence: {a(2)=5, a(1)=3, (n^2+2*n+1)*a(n)+(-n^2-3*n-1)*a(n+1)+a(n+2)*n}

%F From _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Jul 04 2012: (Start)

%F a(0)=3; for n>0, a(n) = n*a(n-1)-n+1.

%F Let E(x) be the e.g.f., then

%F E(x)=(x*G(0)-2)/(x-1), where G(k)= 1 - 1/(x - x^3/(x^2 - (k+1)/G(k+1)));(continued fraction, 3rd kind, 3-step).

%F E(x)=x*G(0)/(x-1), where G(k)= 1 - 1/(x + 2*x*(x-1)*k!/(1 - 2*(x-1)*k! - x^2/(x^2 + 2*(x-1)*(k+1)!/G(k+1)))); (continued fraction, 3rd kind, 4-step).

%F (End).
