COMMENTS

Hankel transform {t(n)} of {a(n)} is given by t(n) = Det[{a(1), a(2), ..., a(n)}, {a(2), a(3), ..., a(n+1)}, ..., {a(n), a(n+1), ..., a(2n1)}].


LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..12.


EXAMPLE

Given that {a(n)} = {1,2,5,6,a(5),...}, a(5) is seen to be 42 since Det[{1,2,5},{2,5,6},{5,6,42}] = 1, whereas Det[{1,2,5},{2,5,6},{5,6,43}] = 2.
