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. - 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. - 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 (* Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Oct 23 2008 *)
