FORMULA
a(n) = Sum((-1)^j*binomial(n-j,j)*bell(n-2j,j), j=0..floor(n/2)).
G.f.: Sum_{n>=0} x^n / Product_{k=0..n} (1 - k*x + x^2). - Paul D. Hanna, Sep 03 2017
EXAMPLE
a(3)=3 because we have 1-2-3, 13-2, and 123. a(4)=10 because among the 15 (=bell(4)) partitions of {1,2,3,4} only 12-34, 14-23, 12-3-4, 1-23-4, and 1-2-34, have adjacent blocks of size 2.
Contribution from Paul D. Hanna, Sep 03 2017: (Start)
G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + x^2 + 3*x^3 + 10*x^4 + 35*x^5 + 139*x^6 + 611*x^7 + 2925*x^8 + 15128*x^9 + 83903*x^10 + 495929*x^11 + 3108129*x^12 +...
where
G.f.: A(x) = 1/(1+x^2) + x/((1+x^2)*(1-x+x^2)) + x^2/((1+x^2)*(1-x+x^2)*(1-2*x+x^2)) + x^3/((1+x^2)*(1-x+x^2)*(1-2*x+x^2)*(1-3*x+x^2)) +... (End)
