COMMENTS

A rooted tree with a forbidden limb of length k is a rooted tree where the path from any leaf inward hits a branching node or the root within k steps.

FORMULA

a(n) satisfies a=SHIFT_RIGHT(EULER(a-b)) where b(4)=1, b(k)=0 if k != 4.

a(n) ~ c * d^n / n^(3/2), where d = 2.9224691962496551739365155005926289..., c = 0.43112017460637374030857983498164... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 25 2014
