%N Number of refinement sequences n -> ... -> {1}^n, where in each step one part is replaced by a partition of itself into two smaller parts (in weakly decreasing order).

%C Number of proper (n-1)-times partitions of n, cf. A327639.

%C Might be called "Half-Factorial numbers" analog to the "Half-Catalan numbers" (A000992).

%C The recursion formula is a special case of the formula given in A327729.
