%F E.g.f.: g(z)=(1/4)[3+2z+exp(2z)-4exp(z)]/(1-z).

%F a(n) ~ (5/4-exp(1)+exp(2)/4) * n! = 0.378982196273617... * n!. - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Mar 15 2014

%e a(4)=7 because each of the following permutations of {1,2,3,4} has 1 cycle with 2 alternating runs: (132)(4), (142)(3), (143)(2), (1)(243), (1243), (1342), and (1432); the remaining 17 permutations have none.

%p g := (1/4*(3+2*z+exp(2*z)-4*exp(z)))/(1-z): gser := series(g, z = 0, 25): seq(factorial(n)*coeff(gser, z, n), n = 0 .. 22);

%p # second Maple program:

%p b:= proc(n) option remember; expand(

%p `if`(j=1, 1, (j-1)!+(2^(j-2)-1)*(x-1)), j=1..n)))
