COMMENTS

With polynomials p_n(x) from A109086, g_n(x) = prod(j = 0, n-3)p_j(x)^(n-j-2)/p_(n-1)(x), f_n(x) = p_n(x)/prod(j = 0, n-1)p_j(x), n >= 0. Taylor series of 1/f(x) is A109088. f(1) = f(2) = A109089(decimal expansion) = A109090(continued fraction). The function f(x) has poles at 0, i and -i, a real minimum at about 1.448 and a real maximum at about -0.904.

FORMULA

Define two sequences of rational functions g_0(x) = 1, f_0(x) = x, g_(n+1)(x) = g_n(x)/f_n(x), f_(n+1)(x) = f_n(x)+g_n(x), n >= 0. Then define the function f(x) = lim(n->infinity)f_n(x), sum(n = 0, infinity)a(n)x^n = x*f(x).

EXAMPLE

x*f(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 - x^3 - 2*x^4 + x^5 + 5*x^6 - 2*x^7 - 16*x^8 + 16*x^9 + 32*x ^10 - 62*x^11 - 3*x^12 + 11*x^13 + 57*x^14 + 806*x^15 + O(x^16).

PROG
