 A100239 G.f. A(x) satisfies: 3^n + 1 = Sum_{k=0..n} [x^k]A(x)^n and also satisfies: (3+z)^n + (1+z)^n - z^n = Sum_{k=0..n} [x^k](A(x)+z*x)^n for all z, where [x^k]A(x)^n denotes the coefficient of x^k in A(x)^n. 3

 OFFSET 0,2 LINKS FORMULA G.f.: A(x) = (1+3*x+sqrt(1+6*x-3*x^2))/2. Given g.f. A(x), then B(x)=A(x)-1-2x series reversion is -B(-x). - Michael Somos, Sep 07 2005 Given g.f. A(x) and C(x) = g.f. of A025226, then B(x)=A(x)-1-2x satisfies B(x)=x-C(x*B(x)). - Michael Somos, Sep 07 2005 EXAMPLE From the table of powers of A(x), we see that 3^n+1 = Sum of coefficients [x^0] through [x^n] in A(x)^n: A^1=[1,3],-3,9,-36,162,-783,3969,-20817,... A^2=[1,6,3],0,-9,54,-297,1620,-8910,49572,... A^3=[1,9,18,0],0,0,-27,243,-1701,10935,... A^4=[1,12,42,36,-9],0,0,0,-81,972,-8262,... A^5=[1,15,75,135,45,-27],0,0,0,0,-243,... A^6=[1,18,117,324,324,0,-54],0,0,0,0,0,... A^7=[1,21,168,630,1071,567,-189,-81],0,0,0,... A^8=[1,24,228,1080,2610,2808,540,-648,-81],0,0,... the main diagonal of which is: [x^n]A(x)^(n+1) = (n+1)*A057083(n) for n>=0.
