COMMENTS

Inspired by peculiar functional equations suggested by Michael Somos. Unexpectedly, the even-indexed terms are all zeros after index 2; see A107699 for odd-indexed terms. The self-COMPOSE equals A107701.

FORMULA

G.f. satisfies: A(-A(-x)) = x.

G.f. satisfies: A( A(x) - 2*x^2 ) = x. [Paul D. Hanna, Aug 20 2008]

a(n)=T(n,1), T(n,m)=sum(j=max(2*m-n,0)..m-1,binomial(m,j)*2^(m-j-1) *T(n-j,2*(m-j)))-1/2*sum(i=m+1..n-1, T(n,i)*T(i,m)), n>m, T(n,n)=1. [Vladimir Kruchinin, Mar 12 2012]

MATHEMATICA

T[n_, n_] = 1; T[n_, m_] := T[n, m] = Sum[Binomial[m, j]*2^(m-j-1)*T[n-j, 2*(m-j)], {j, Max[2*m-n, 0], m-1}] - 1/2*Sum[T[n, i]*T[i, m], {i, m+1, n-1}]; Table[T[n, 1], {n, 1, 34}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Mar 03 2014, after Vladimir Kruchinin *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=local(A, B, F); A=x+x^2+x*O(x^n); if(n<1, 0, for(i=0, n, F=x+2*A^2; B=serreverse(A); A=(A+subst(B, x, F))/2); polcoeff(A, n, x))}

(Maxima)

T(n, m):=if n=m then 1 else sum(binomial(m, j)*2^(m-j-1)*T(n-j, 2*(m-j)), j, max(2*m-n, 0), m-1)-1/2*sum(T(n, i)*T(i, m), i, m+1, n-1);
