%N Inverse binomial transform of squares of factorial numbers.

%C a(n) enumerates (ordered) lists of n two-tuples such that all numbers from 1 to n appear as the first as well as the second tuple entry and the j-th list member is not the tuple (j,j), for every j=1,..,n. Called coincidence-free 2-tuple lists of length n. See the Charalambides reference for this combinatorial interpretation.

%F a(n) = Sum_{j=0..n} ((-1)^(n-j))*binomial(n,j)*(j!)^2. See the Charalambides reference a(n)=B_{n,2}.

%F a(n) = (n-1)*(n+1)*a(n-1) + (n-1)*(2*n-1)*a(n-2) + (n-2)*(n-1)*a(n-3). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Aug 13 2013

%F G.f.: Sum_{k>=0} (k!)^2*x^k/(1 + x)^(k+1). - _Ilya Gutkovskiy_, Apr 12 2019

%e 2-tuple combinatorics: a(1)=0 because the only list of 2-tuples with numbers 1 is [(1,1)] and this is a coincidence for j=1.

%e 2-tuple combinatorics: the a(2)=3 coincidence free 2-tuple lists of length n=2 are [(1,2),(2,1)], [(2,1),(1,2)] and [(2,2),(1,1)]. The list [(1,1),(2,2)] has two coincidences (j=1 and j=2).

%p a:= proc(n) option remember;

%p `if`(n<2, 1-n, n^2*a(n-1)+n*(n-1)*a(n-2)+(-1)^n)

%p end:
