COMMENTS

After initial 2 terms, reversing signs yields A157310.

Conjecture: a(m) == 1 (mod 2) iff m is a power of 2 or m=0. [From Paul D. Hanna, Mar 17 2009]

FORMULA

Let F(x) = o.g.f. of A155585, then o.g.f. A(x) satisfies:

A(x) = x/serreverse(x*F(x));

A(x) = 2x + F( -x/(A(x) - 2x) );

A(x) = F(x/A(x));

F(x) = A(x*F(x));

where A155585 is defined by e.g.f. exp(x)/cosh(x).

...

Let G(x) = o.g.f. of A122045, then o.g.f. A(x) satisfies:

A(x) = x + x/serreverse(x*G(x));

A(x) = x + G( x/(A(x) - x) );

G(x) = A(x*G(x))/(1+x);

where A122045 is the Euler numbers.

...

O.g.f.: A(x) = 2*(1+x) - H(x) where H(x) = g.f. of A157310.

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x - x^2 + 3*x^4 - 38*x^6 + 947*x^8 - 37394*x^10 +-...
