COMMENTS

The divergent series g(x=1,m) = 1^m*1! - 2^m*2! + 3^m*3! - 4^m*4! + ..., m=>-1, is closely related to the value of -Ei(-1). We discovered that g(x=1,m) = (-1)^m*(A040027(m) - A000110(m+1)*Ei(1,1)*exp(1)), see A163940. We observe that Ei(1,1) = E(1,1,1) = -Ei(-1) is the constant given above and that Ei(1,1)*exp(1) = A073003 is Gompertz's constant. [Johannes W. Meijer, Oct 16 2009]
