revised What's the lower bound of the sum $S(n) = \sum_{k=1}^n \prod_{j=1}^k(1-\frac j n)$?

comment What's the asymptotic lower bound of the sum $\frac 3 2 + \sum_{k=3}^{n} \frac{n!}{k(n-k)!n^k}$?
That's really impressive.

The 2 $(n-2)$ is a typo, I just fixed it.

comment Is it possible to get the coefficients of the power series
No, I can't, although the problem doesn't indicate the domain of s explicitly, in the context, $s$ is a real number.

comment Is it possible to get the coefficients of the power series
The thing is, according to my understanding of the problem. What I can get is only $f(s)$, not $f'(s)$. In fact, I'm trying to construct a random variable with the same distribution as $Z$, but without knowing $p_0, p_1, p_2, \ldots $, it seems impossible . That's why I'm trying to get all $p_i$'s.

Thanks. BTW, what does "a.s." mean?
