COMMENTS

See triangle A064334 with columns m built from C(-m; n), m >= 0, also for Derrida et al. references.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..19.

FORMULA

a(n)= sum((n-m)*binomial(n-1+m, m)*((-5)^m)/n, m=0..n-1) = ((1/6)^n)*(1+5*sum(C(k)*(-5*6)^k, k=0..n-1)), n >= 1, a(0) := 1; with C(n)=A000108(n) (Catalan).

G.f.: (1+5*x*c(-5*x)/6)/(1-x/6) = 1/(1-x*c(-5*x)) with c(x) g.f. of Catalan numbers A000108.

a(n) = hypergeometric([1-n, n], [-n], -5) for n>0. - Peter Luschny, Nov 30 2014

PROG

(Sage)

def a(n):

    if n==0: return 1

    return hypergeometric([1-n, n], [-n], -5).simplify()

[a(n) for n in range(24)] # Peter Luschny, Nov 30 2014
