%N B-trees of order 3 with n leaves.

%C A B-tree of order m is an ordered tree such that every node has at most m children, the root has at least 2 children, every node except for the root has 0 or at least m/2 children, all end-nodes are at the same level.

%C Limit n->infinity a(n)^(1/n) = (1+sqrt(5))/2, for more detailed asymptotics see Odlyzko 1982 reference. - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Jul 29 2014
