FORMULA
a(n) is asymptotic to c*n! with c=0.9007... - Benoit Cloitre, Sep 03 2002
Right asymptotic (with offset=0) is a(n) ~ c * (n+1)!, where c = 2*BesselI(1,2)-BesselI(0,2) = 0.9016884069385908593273044... - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 05 2013
E.g.f.: 2*Pi*(I*BesselY(3, 2*I)*BesselI(2, 2*sqrt(1-x)) + BesselI(3, 2)*BesselY(2, 2*I*sqrt(1-x)))/(1-x). Such e.g.f. computations were inspired after e-mail exchange with Gary Detlefs. After differentiation and putting x=0 one has to use simplifications. See the Abramowitz-Stegun handbook, p.360, 9.1.16. [Wolfdieter Lang, May 19 2010]
