COMMENTS

a(n+1) is the Hankel transform of A135052. - Paul Barry, Nov 15 2007

a(n+1) is the Hankel transform of the aerated large Schroeder numbers. a(n) and a(n+1) both satisfy the trivial Somos-4 recurrence u(n)=4*u(n-2)^2/u(n-4). Associated with the elliptic curve y^2=1-6x^2+x^4 via Schroeder numbers. - Paul Barry, Dec 08 2009

Hankel transform of A089324. - Paul Barry, Mar 01 2010

a(n+1) is the number of n X n binary matrices that are symmetric about both diagonals (bisymmetric). For the derivation of this result, see the link below. - Dennis P. Walsh, Apr 03 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^floor( n^2/4 ) = a(n - 1) * 2^floor( n/2 ) = a(n - 2) * 2^(n - 1) = a(n - 1) * A016116(n) = 2^A002620(n).

0 = a(n) * a(n+3) + a(n+1) * ( -2*a(n+2) ) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 24 2014

0 = a(n) * a(n+4) + a(n+2) * ( -4*a(n+2) ) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 24 2014

EXAMPLE

a(6) = 2*64*16/4 = 512.

G.f.: 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 4*x^3 + 16*x^4 + 64*x^5 + 512*x^6 + 4096*x^7 + ...
