Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

FORMULA

a(n+1) = 2*a(n)*(a(0)+...+a(n-1))+a(n)^2.

a(n+1) = a(n)^2+a(n)+a(n)*sqrt(4*a(n)-3), if n>0.

a(n) = A003095(n+1) - A003095(n) = A003095(n)^2 - A003095(n) + 1. - Henry Bottomley, Apr 26 2001; offset of LHS corrected by Anindya Bhattacharyya, Jun 21 2013

a(n) = A059826(A003095(n-1)).

MAPLE

s := proc(n) local i, j, ans; ans := [ 1 ]; for i to n do ans := [ op(ans), 2*(add(j, j=ans)-ans[ i ])*ans[ i ]+ans[ i ]^2 ] od; RETURN(ans); end; s(10);

MATHEMATICA

a[0] = 1; a[n_] := a[n] = 2*a[n-1]*Sum[a[k], {k, 0, n-2}] + a[n-1]^2; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 9}] (* Jean-François Alcover, May 16 2012 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = if( n<=1, n>= 0, a(n-1) * (a(n-1) + a(n-2) + a(n-1) / a(n-2)))} /* Michael Somos, 2000 */
