COMMENTS

An autosequence of the first kind is a sequence whose main diagonal in the difference table is A000004 = 0's.

This is the case for a(n).

Difference table of a(n):

   0,  2,  2,  3,  4,  5, ...

   2,  0,  1,  1,  1,  1, ...

  -2,  1,  0,  0,  0,  0, ...

   3, -1,  0,  0,  0,  0, ...

  -4,  1,  0,  0,  0,  0, ...

   5, -1,  0,  0,  0,  0, ...

  etc.

The inverse binomial transform of a(n) is (-1)^(n+1)*a(n).

0 followed by A000012(n) is not in the OEIS. See A054977.

What is the meaning of a(n)?

Among many others, A015441 is an autosequence of the first kind.

General form for such autosequence.

Starting from the first upper diagonal s0, s1, s2, s3, s4, ...,

the autosequence is

0, s0, s0, s0 + s1, s0 + 2*s1, s0 + 3*s1 + s2, s0 + 4*s1 + 3*s2, ... .

After 0, the corresponding coefficients are A011973(n).
