COMMENTS

Since the PMF represents a probability function, there is no unique set of numerators. That is, only the relative magnitude of the sum of the numerators matter so long as the denominator is of the same relative magnitude (since the relative magnitudes cancel upon division).

FORMULA

a(n)=Sum_{k=0..[ n/2 ]} k^4*n!/((n-2*k)!*2^k*k!).

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = sum(k=0, n\2 , k^4*n!/((n-2*k)!*2^k*k!)); \\ Michel Marcus, Aug 10 2013
