%F E.g.f.: 1/(1 - sinh(x)).

%F With alternating signs, e.g.f.: 1/(1+sinh(x)). - _Ralf Stephan_, Apr 29 2004

%F a(0) = a(1) = 1, a(n) = Sum_{k=1..ceiling(n/2)} C(n,2*k-1)*a(n-2*k+1). - _Ralf Stephan_, Apr 29 2004

%F a(n) ~ (sqrt(2)/2)*n!/log(1+sqrt(2))^(n+1). - Conjectured by _Simon Plouffe_, Feb 17 2007.

%F From A. N. W. Hone (A.N.W.Hone(AT)kent.ac.uk), Feb 22 2007: (Start)

%F This formula can be proved using the techniques in the article by Philippe Flajolet, Symbolic Enumerative Combinatorics and Complex Asymptotic Analysis, Algorithms Seminar 2000-2001, F. Chyzak (ed.), INRIA, (2002), pp. 161-170 [see Theorem 5 and Table 2, noting that 1/(1-sinh(x)) just has a simple pole at x=log(1+sqrt(2)]. (End)

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} Sum_{i=0..k} (-1)^i*(k-2*i)^n*binomial(k,i)/2^k, n > 0, a(0)=1. - _Vladimir Kruchinin_, May 28 2011

%F Row sums (apart from a(0)) of A196776. - _Peter Bala_, Oct 06 2011

%F Row sums of A193474. - _Peter Luschny_, Oct 07 2011

%F a(n) = D^n(1/(1-x)) evaluated at x = 0, where D is the operator sqrt(1+x^2)*d/dx. Cf. A003724 and A000111. - _Peter Bala_, Dec 06 2011

%F From _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Jun 01 2012: (Start)

%F Let E(x) be the e.g.f., then

%F E(x) = -1/x + 1/(x*(1-x))+ x^3/((1-x)*((1-x)*G(0) - x^2)); G(k) = (2*k+2)*(2*k+3)+x^2-(2*k+2)*(2*k+3)*x^2/G(k+1); (continued fraction).

%F E(x) = -1/x + 1/(x*(1-x))+ x^3/((1-x)*((1-x)*G(0) - x^2)); G(k) = 8*k+6+x^2/(1 + (2*k+2)*(2*k+3)/G(k+1)); (continued fraction).

%F E(x) = 1/(1 - x*G(0)); G(k) = 1 + x^2/(2*(2*k+1)*(4*k+3) + 2*x^2*(2*k+1)*(4*k+3)/(-x^2 - 4*(k+1)*(4*k+5)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction).

%F (End).

%F E.g.f. 1/(1 - x*G(0)) where G(k) = 1 - x^2/( (2*k+1)*(2*k+3) - 2*k+1)*(2*k+3)^2/(2*k+3 - (2*k+2)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Oct 01 2012
