Limit_{x -> inf} Sum {n=0..inf} (Floor[n/x])!^x/n! = e (A001113).
For A248682: x = 2; A248683: x = 3; A248684: x = 4; A248685: x = 5. - Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 22 2016
Let n} denote the swinging factorial A056040(n), then the constant equals Sum_{n>=0} 1/n} and is sometimes called the swinging constant e}. ("e}" is written in TeX $e\wr$). For a proof that it equals 3^(1/2)*(2/3)^3*Pi + 4/3 see the link to Mathematics Stack Exchange. - Peter Luschny, Jul 22 2022

FORMULA
Equals Sum_{n >= 0} (n!^2)*p(2,n)/(2*n + 1)!, where p(k,n) is defined at A248664.
Equals Sum_{n >= 0} (floor(n/2)!)^2/n! = Sum_(n >= 1) (3n^2 - 7n + 6)/C(2n, n) = 4/3 + 8*Pi/sqrt(243). - Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 11 2016
Equals 1 + Integral_{x>=0} 1/(x^2 - x + 1)^2 dx. - Amiram Eldar, Nov 16 2021
