COMMENTS

a(n) = Determinant(A - A^2 + A^3 - A^4 + A^5 - ... - (-1)^n*A^n)

where A is the submatrix A(1..8,1..8) of the matrix with factorial determinant

A= [[1,1,1,1,1,1,...], [1,2,1,2,1,2,...], [1,2,3,1,2,3,...], [1,2,3,4,1,2,...], [1,2,3,4,5,1,...], [1,2,3,4,5,6,...], ...]; note: Determinant A(1..n,1..n) = (n-1)!.

a(n) is even with respect to signs of power of A.
