COMMENTS

It appears that the difference between a(n)/a(n-1) and a(n-1)/a(n-2) approaches some factor, 5 < x < 7, as n --> oo.

It appears that 3|a(n) for n > 1.

FORMULA

a(n) = ((n*(n+1))/2)/(Product_{i=0..floor((n-1)/2),n-2*i}/Product_{i=1..n}).

From Chai Wah Wu, Feb 07 2018: (Start)

a(n) = n*(n+1)!!/2.

a(n)/a(n-1) = ((n+1)!!/n!!)*(n/(n-1)) = n/b*(n-1) if n is even and n*Pi/(2*b*(n-1)) if n is odd where b = int_{x=0..(Pi/2)} sin^(n+1)*x dx.

Since b -> 0 as n -> oo, a(n)/a(n-1) is unbounded as n -> oo. On the other hand, a(n)/a(n-1) and a(n-1)/a(n-2) differ by a multiplicative factor of approximately Pi/2.

(End)

EXAMPLE

For n = 6, a(6) = binomial(6+1,2)/(6!!/6!) = 315.
