Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..387

FORMULA

a(n) ~ tanh(exp(-1)) * n^(n-1).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)-1} binomial(n,2*k+1)*(m-2*k-1)^(m-2*k-2) - Sum_{k=1..floor(n/2)} binomial(n,2*k)*a(n-2*k). - Robert Israel, Oct 26 2016

MAPLE

F:= proc(m) option remember; add(binomial(m, 2*k+1)*(m-2*k-1)^(m-2*k-2), k=0..floor(m/2)-1) - add(binomial(m, 2*k)*procname(m-2*k), k=1..floor(m/2)) end proc:

map(F, [$0..30]); # Robert Israel, Oct 26 2016
