FORMULA

From Wouter Meeussen, Feb 02 2001: (Start)

a(2*r+1) = Sum_{j=0..r} (binomial(r+j, r-j)*(r+j)!/(r-j)! - binomial(r + j, r-j-1)*(r+j+1)!/(r-j)!) and

a(2*r) = Sum_{j=0..r} (binomial(r+j+1, r-j)*(r+j+1)!/(r-j)! - binomial(r +j, r-j)*(r+j+1)!/(r-j+1)! + binomial(r+j+1, r-j)*(r+j+1)!/(r-j)!). (End)

E.g.f.: Pi*(BesselI(2, 2)*BesselY(2, 2*I*sqrt(1-x)) - BesselY(2,2*I)*BesselI(2, 2*sqrt(1-x)))/(1-x). Motivated to look into e.g.f.'s for such recurrences by email exchange with Gary Detlefs. One has to use simplifications after differentiation and putting x=0. See Abramowitz-Stegun handbook p. 360, 9.1.16. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 18 2010

Limit n->infinity a(n)/(n+1)! = BesselI(0,2)-BesselI(1,2) = 0.688948447698738204... - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 05 2013

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..floor((n-1)/2)} (n-2*k-1)!*binomial(n-k-1,k)* binomial(n-k+1,k+2). Cf. A058798. - Peter Bala, Aug 01 2013

a(n) = (n+1)!*hypergeometric([1/2-n/2,1-n/2],[3,-1-n,1-n],4)/2 for n >= 2. - Peter Luschny, Sep 10 2014

E.g.f.: 2*(I(2,2)*K(2, 2*sqrt(1-x)) - K(2,2)*I(2, 2*sqrt(1-x)))/(1-x), where I(n, x) and K(n, x) are the modified Bessel functions of the second kind. - G. C. Greubel, Oct 07 2019
