FORMULA

a(n) = A185105(n,3) = A159324(n-1)/2.

a(n) ~ n!*n/8. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 25 2017

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) option remember; `if`(n<4, [0$3, 1][n+1],

      ((2*n^3-7*n^2+3*n+4)*a(n-1)-(n-2)^3*(n+1)*a(n-2))/(n*(n-3)))

    end:

seq(a(n), n=0..25);

MATHEMATICA

a[3] = 1; a[4] = 8;

a[n_] := a[n] = ((2n^3-7n^2+3n+4) a[n-1] - (n-2)^3 (n+1) a[n-2])/(n(n-3));

Table[a[n], {n, 3, 25}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, May 30 2018, from Maple *)
