FORMULA

G.f.: (-1+x+sqrt(1+6*x+x^2))/x/4. - Vladeta Jovovic, Sep 27 2003

Conjecture: (n+1)*a(n) +3*(2*n-1)*a(n-1) +(n-2)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

G.f.: 1 - x/(Q(0) + x) where Q(k) = 1 + k*(1+x) + x + x*(k+1)*(k+2)/Q(k+1); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 14 2013

a(n) ~ (-1)^n * sqrt(4+3*sqrt(2)) * (3+2*sqrt(2))^n /(4*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 15 2013
