COMMENTS
a(n) is the number of ways to partition {1,2,...,n} into any number of blocks, then order the blocks so that the set of least elements of the blocks is an alternating permutation.

FORMULA
a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} Stirling2(n,k)*A001250(k).
E.g.f.: B(exp(x)-1) where B(x) = 2(tan(x) + sec(x))-1-x.
a(n) ~ 8 * n! / ((Pi+2) * log(1 + Pi/2)^(n+1)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jun 24 2020

nn = 20; a[x_] := Tan[x] + Sec[x]; b[x_] := 2 a[x] - 1 - x;
