COMMENTS
That s(n) > 0 for n >=1 follows from the chain 1 < log 2 < 3/4 < 2 log 3/2 < 5/6 < 3 log 4/3 < 7/8 < 4 log 5/4 < ... ; i.e., n log((n+1)/n) - (2n-1)/(2n) > 0 and (2n+1)/(2n+2) - n log((n+1)/n) > 0. For the first, closeness to 0 is indicated by A227719 and A227720, and for the second, by A227721 and a sequence which possibly equals A094159. Conjecture: the four sequences are linearly recurrent.

FORMULA
a(n) = 2 + 9*n + 6*n^2 (conjectured).
a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) (conjectured).
G.f.: (-17 + 7 x - 2 x^2)/(-1 + x)^3 (conjectured).
