%C E.g.f. equals the square-root of the e.g.f. of A134095. - _Paul D. Hanna_, Oct 11 2007

%H Alois P. Heinz, <a href="/A060435/b060435.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..386</a>

%F E.g.f.: 1/sqrt(1-(LambertW(-x))^2). a(n)=(n-1)!*Sum_{k=0..floor((n-2)/2)} (k+1)/2^(2*k+1)*binomial(2*k+2, k+1)*n^(n-2-2*k)/(n-2-2*k)!.

%F A134095(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} C(n,k) * a(n-k) * a(k) with a(0)=1 and a(1)=0 where A134095(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} C(n,k) * (n-k)^k * k^(n-k). - _Paul D. Hanna_, Oct 11 2007

%F a(n) ~ n! * 2^(3/4)*Gamma(3/4)*exp(n)/(4*Pi*n^(3/4)) * (1- 5*Pi/ (24*Gamma(3/4)^2*sqrt(n))). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Sep 24 2013

%e The formula A(x) = 1/sqrt(1 - LambertW(-x)^2 ) is illustrated by:

%e A(x) = 1/sqrt(1 - (x+ x^2+ 3^2*x^3/3!+ 4^3*x^4/4!+ 5^4*x^5/5! +...)^2).
