%N E.g.f.: -log(cos(x)*cos(x)) (even powers only).

%C Of course this is 2*log(sec(x)), so a(n) = 2*A000182(n).

%F G.f.: 2/Q(0) where Q(k) = 1 + x*(2*k + 1)*(2*k + 2)/( -1 + x*(2*k + 2)*(2*k + 3)/Q(k+1) ); (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Mar 11 2013

%F G.f.: (2/G(0) - 1)*sqrt(-x), where G(k)= 2 + 2*sqrt(-x) - 4*x*(k+1)^2/G(k+1); (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, May 29 2013

%F G.f.: 2*x*T(0), where T(k) = 1 - (k+1)*(k+2)*x/((k+1)*(k+2)*x - 1/T(k+1) ); (continued fraction). - _Sergei N. Gladkovskii_, Nov 15 2013
