COMMENTS

If s(n) is a sequence defined by s(0)=x, s(n)=(n+1)*s(n-1)+k,n>0 then s(n) = n!*x +(n!-a(n+1))*k [From Gary Detlefs, Jun 10 2010]

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..20.

FORMULA

a(n) =ceiling[(3-e)*n! ] =n!-A056542(n) =2*n!-A002627(n) =3*n!-A000522(n)

a(n)=n!*[2-Sum_{k=1..n}{k!^(-1)}], with n>=1 [From Paolo P. Lava, Jun 25 2010]

EXAMPLE

a(4)=4*a(3)-1=4*2-1=7

MATHEMATICA

lst={1}; s=-1; Do[s+=s++n; AppendTo[lst, Abs[s]], {n, 5!}]; lst [From Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Oct 23 2008]
