COMMENTS

The sequence has strictly alternating signs. The variant Dobinski-type formula e^(-1)* (2)^n * sum( (k-1/2)^n / k!,k=0..infinity) is strictly positive. - Karol A. Penson and Olivier Gérard, Oct 22 2007

FORMULA

E.g.f.: exp(exp(-2*x)-1+x). - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 04 2007

G.f.: 1/U(0) where U(k)=  1 + x*(2*k+1) - 4*x^2*(k+1)/U(k+1) ; (continued fraction, 1-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 11 2012
