FORMULA

G.f.: A(x) = (1 - sqrt(1 - 4*x*(1-x)/(1-3*x+3*x^2) ))/2.

Recurrence: n*a(n) = 2*(5*n-6)*a(n-1) - (31*n-66)*a(n-2) + 42*(n-3)*a(n-3) - 21*(n-4)*a(n-4). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 24 2012

a(n) ~ sqrt(14*sqrt(21)-42)*((7+sqrt(21))/2)^n/(16*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 24 2012

EXAMPLE

A(x) = x + 3*x^2 + 9*x^3 + 30*x^4 + 114*x^5 + 480*x^6 + 2157*x^7 +...

G(x) = x + x^2 + x^3 + 2*x^4 + 6*x^5 + 18*x^6 + 53*x^7 + 158*x^8 +...

where G(x) is the g.f. of A120010 and G(G(G(x))) = A(x).
