Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

FORMULA

Equals Sum_{n>=0} Sum_{k>=0} 1/(n!*k!). - Fredrik Johansson, Apr 21 2006

Equals Sum_{n>=0} 2^n/n!. - Daniel Hoyt Nov 20 2020

From Peter Bala, Jan 13 2022: (Start)

e^2 = Sum_{n >= 0} 2^n/n!. Faster converging series include

e^2 = 8*Sum_{n >= 0} 2^n/(p(n-1)*p(n)*n!), where p(n) = n^2 - n + 2 and

e^2 = -48*Sum_{n >= 0} 2^n/(q(n-1)*q(n)*n!), where q(n) = n^3 + 5*n - 2.

e^2 = 7 + Sum_{n >= 0} 2^(n+3)/((n+2)^2*(n+3)^2*n!) and

7/e^2 = 1 - Sum_{n >= 0} (-2)^(n+1)*n^2/(n+2)!.

e^2 = 7 + 2/(5 + 1/(7 + 1/(9 + 1/(11 + ...)))) (follows from the fact that A004273 is the continued fraction expansion of tanh(1) = (e^2 - 1)/ (e^2 + 1)). Cf. A001204. (End)

Equals lim_{n->oo} (Sum_{k=1..n} 1/binomial(n,k)^x)^(n^x), for all real x > 1/2 (Furdui, 2013). - Amiram Eldar, Mar 26 2022
