FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{i=0..n/2} Sum_{j=i..n/2} binomial(j,i)*A053530(i)*(2*binomial(n,2*j)*(n-j)^(j-i) + Sum_{k=1..(n-2*j)/3} n*binomial(j+k-1,j)*binomial(n-k-1,2*k+2*j-1)*(n-2*k-j)^(j-i)/k). - Andrew Howroyd, Aug 13 2017

MATHEMATICA

b[n_] := b[n] = n!*SeriesCoefficient[Exp[-x-x^2/2 + x*Exp[x]], {x, 0, n}];

a[n_] := Sum[b[i]*Sum[Binomial[j, i]*(2*Binomial[n, 2*j]*(n - j)^(j - i) + Sum[n*Binomial[j + k - 1, j]*Binomial[n - k - 1, 2*k + 2*j - 1]*(n - 2*k - j)^(j - i)/k, {k, 1, (n - 2*j)/3}]), {j, i, n/2}], {i, 0, n/2}];
