FORMULA

a(n) = Polygorial(n, 5) = (A000142(n)/A000079(n))*A008544(n) = (n!/2^n)*product(3*i+2, i=0..n-1) = (n!/2^n)*3^n*pochhammer(2/3, n) = (n!/2^n)*3^n*GAMMA(n+2/3)/GAMMA(2/3).

a(n) ~ Gamma(1/3) * 3^(n+1/2) * n^(2*n+2/3) / (2^n * exp(2*n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 17 2015

a(n+1) = ((n+1)*(3*n+2)/2)*a(n) = A000326(n+1)*a(n). - Muniru A Asiru, Apr 05 2016

E.g.f.: hypergeom([2/3, 1], [], (3/2)*x). - Robert Israel, Apr 05 2016

MAPLE

a := n->(n!/2^n)*mul(3*i+2, i=0..n-1); [seq(a(j), j=0..30)];
