%N a(n) equals the sum of all permutations of compositions of functions (1 + k*x) for k=1..n, evaluated at x=1.

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} k!*(n-k)! * Sum_{i=0..n-k+1} (-1)^(n-i+1) * Stirling2(i,n-k+1) * Stirling1(n+1,i)).

%F a(n) = (n!)^2 + A277405(n).

%F a(n) = (n+1) * A277407(n).

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A277408(n,k).

%e Illustration of initial terms.

%e a(0) = 1, by convention;

%e a(1) = 2, the function (1+x) evaluated at x=1;

%e a(2) = 9, the sum of permutations of compositions of functions (1+x) and (1+2*x), evaluated at x=1:

%e (1+x)o(1+2*x) + (1+2*x)o(1+x) = (2*x + 2) + (2*x + 3) = 4*x + 5.

%e a(3) = 76, the sum of permutations of compositions of functions (1+x), (1+2*x), and (1+3*x), evaluated at x=1:

%e (1+x)o(1+2*x)o(1+3*x) + (1+x)o(1+3*x)o(1+2*x) + (1+2*x)o(1+1*x)o(1+3*x) + (1+2*x)o(1+3*x)o(1+1*x) + (1+3*x)o(1+1*x)o(1+2*x) + (1+3*x)o(1+2*x)o(1+1*x) = (6*x + 4) + (6*x + 5) + (6*x + 5) + (6*x + 9) + (6*x + 7) + (6*x + 10) = 36*x + 40.

%e etc.

%e Alternatively,

%e a(1) = 2 = Sum_{i=1..1} (1+i),

%e a(2) = 9 = Sum_{i=1..2, j=1..2, j<>i} (1 + i*(1+j)),

%e a(3) = 76 = Sum_{i=1..3, j=1..3, k=1..3, i,j,k distinct} (1 + i*(1 + j*(1+k))),

%e a(4) = 1100 = Sum_{i=1..4, j=1..4, k=1..4, m=1..4, i,j,k,m distinct} (1 + i*(1 + j*(1 + k*(1+m)))), etc.
