### Does anyone recognize this generating function [closed]

$a_1=1, a_2=1, a_3=3, a_4=15, a_5=105$
Reccurence formula is
$a_{k+1}=\sum\limits_{\lambda_1+\lambda_2+\ldots+\lambda_s=k,\ \lambda_i\geq1} a_{\lambda_1}a_{\lambda_2}...a_{\lambda_s}{k \choose ...

I am interested in the sequence
$$a(n)=\sum_{k=0}^n {p(n-k) \choose k}$$
where $p(n)$ is a polynomial equation.
When $p(n)=n$ this reduces to the Fibonacci sequence, but what about when $p(n)$ is ...

### An interesting, simple, sequence - surprised to find little material. [closed]

I've been considering this sequence:
$$1,2,3,6,12,24,48,96,192,...$$
I've generated the sequence from the rule
$$V_n=\sum_{0\leq i \lt n} V_i$$
$$V_0=1; V_1=2V_0=V_0+V_0$$
What interests me most, ...
