COMMENTS

Operation # can be interpreted as NOT OR. The ratio a(n)/A000108(n-1) converges to sqrt(3)/3. Thanks to Soren Galatius Smith.

Essentially second column of A112519. - Paul Barry, Sep 09 2005

FORMULA

G.f.: (1/2)*(1 + sqrt(3 - 2*sqrt(1 - 4*x))).

The g.f. Z is also given by Z(x) = C(x)U(xC(x)), where U(x) = C(-x) and C is the g.f. of the Catalan numbers. - D. G. Rogers, Oct 20 2005

a(n) = Sum_{j=0..n} (1/n)*(-1)^(j-1)*C(2*n-j-1, n-j)*C(2*(j-1), j-1). - Paul Barry, Sep 09 2005, corrected by Peter Bala, Aug 19 2014

G.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x) = x + 2*A(x)^3 + A(x)^4; thus, A(x - 2*x^3 - x^4) = x. - Paul D. Hanna, Apr 05 2012

G.f. A(x) satisfies: x = Sum_{n>=1} 1/(1+A(x))^(2*n-1) * Product_{k=1..n} (1 - 1/(1+A(x))^k). - Paul D. Hanna, Apr 05 2012

Conjecture: 500*n*(n-1)*a(n) +100*(n-1)*(5*n -12)*a(n-1) +20*(25*n^2 -463*n +846)*a(n-2) +(-140161*n^2 +966559*n -1637508)*a(n-3) +2*(250*n^2 -26509*n +105084)*a(n-4) +98036*(4*n -19)*(4*n -21)*a(n-5) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

a(n) ~ 4^(n-1) / (sqrt(3*Pi) * n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 03 2019
