Stavros Garoufalidis, Marcos Marino, Universality and asymptotics of graph counting problems in nonorientable surfaces, arXiv:0812.1195 [math.CO], 2008. FORMULA a(n) = numerator(z(n)), where z(n) = 1/2 * (y(n/2)/3^(n/2) + (5*n-6)/6 * z(n-1) + Sum {k=1..n-1} z(k)*z(n-k)), with z(0) = -1, y(n) = A269418(n)/A269419(n) and y(n+1/2) = 0 for all n. p((n+1)/2) = 4 * (A278120(n)/A278121(n)) * (3/2)^((n+1)/2) / gamma((5*n-1)/4), where p((n+1)/2) is the non-orientable map asymptotics constant for type g=(n+1)/2 and gamma is the Gamma function. EXAMPLE For n=2 we have p(3/2) = 4 * (5/144) * (3/2)^(3/2) / gamma(9/4) = 2/(sqrt(6)*gamma(1/4)). For n=4 we have p(5/2) = 4 * (1033/27648) * (3/2)^(5/2) / gamma(19/4) = 1033/(13860*sqrt(6)*gamma(3/4)). n   z(n)                   p((n+1)/2) 0   -1                     3/(sqrt(6)*gamma(3/4)) 1   1/12                   1/2 2   5/144                  2/(sqrt(6)*gamma(1/4)) 3   25/864                 5/(36*sqrt(Pi)) 4   1033/27684             1033/(13860*sqrt(6)*gamma(3/4)) 5   15745/248832           3149/442368 6   1599895/11943936       319979/(18796050*sqrt(6)*gamma(1/4)) 7   12116675/35831808      484667/(560431872*sqrt(Pi)) 8   1519810267/1528823808  1519810267/(4258429005600*sqrt(6)*gamma(3/4)) 9   5730215335/1719926784  1146043067/41094783959040 ...
