Table of n, a(n) for n=0..20.

FORMULA

G.f.: A(x) = -sqrt(1/2*(1+sqrt(1-16*x)))

With interpolated zeros, this has g.f. -(sqrt(1-4x)+sqrt(1+4x))/2. - Paul Barry, Dec 23 2006

Conjecture: n*(2*n-1)*a(n) -2*(4*n-3)*(4*n-5)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 13 2012

G.f.: -1/2*G(0), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - 2*sqrt(x)*(4*k-1)/(2*sqrt(x)*(4*k-1) + (2*k+1)/(1 - 1/(1 - sqrt(x)*(4*k+1)/(sqrt(x)*(4*k+1) - (k+1)/G(k+1) ))))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jul 19 2013

EXAMPLE

sqrt(1/2*(1+sqrt(1-x))) = 1 - 1/8*x - 5/128*x^2 - 21/1024*x^3 - ...
