FORMULA

O.g.f.: g(2x)/g(x) where g(x) = sum_{n>=0} n! x^n.

a(n) ~ n! * 2^n * (1 - 1/(2*n) - 1/(4*n^2) - 5/(8*n^3) - 35/(16*n^4) - 319/(32*n^5) - 3557/(64*n^6) - 46617/(128*n^7) - 699547/(256*n^8) - 11801263/(512*n^9) - 220778973/(1024*n^10)), for coefficients see A260952. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 28 2015

EXAMPLE

For n=2, the Weyl group B_2 has 8 elements and is generated by {t,s} with s^2=t^2=(st)^4=1, the elements which have reduced words containing both s and t are st, ts, sts, tst and stst. The other three elements are 1, s, t. Therefore f(2)=5.

MAPLE

f:=k->coeff(series(add(2^n*n!*x^n, n=0..k)/add(n!*x^n, n=0..k), x, k+1), x, k);
