Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Also numerators of g.f. c(x/2) = (1-sqrt(1-2x))/x where c(x) = g.f. of A000108. - Paul Barry, Sep 04 2007

Also numerator of x(n)=Sum(x(k)*x(n-k-1):0<=k<n), x(0)=1/2: x(n)=a(n)/A086117(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 06 2008

Also numerator of (1/Pi)*int(x^n*sqrt((1-x)/x), x=0..1). - Groux Roland, Mar 17 2011

The negative of this sequence appears in the A-sequence of the Riordan triangle A084930 as numerators 4, -2, -seq(a(n-1), n >= 2). The denominators look like 1, seq(A120777(n-1), n >= 1). - Wolfdieter Lang, Aug 04 2014

The series of a(n)/A046161(n+1) is absolutely convergent to 1. - Ralf Steiner, Feb 09 2017

FORMULA

Numerators of g.f.: 1/(1 + sqrt(1-x)).

a(n) = A000108(n) / 2^A048881(n).

EXAMPLE

1/(1 + sqrt(1-x)) = 1/2 + 1/8*x + 1/16*x^2 + 5/128*x^3 + 7/256*x^4 + ...
