FORMULA

Let F(x) = A(x/F(x)) = o.g.f. of A157309, then F(x) satisfies:

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

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

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

where A157309 has zeros for every other term after initial [1,1].

...

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

A(x) = 2+x - x/Series_Reversion(x*G(x));

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

G(x) = (2 - A(x*G(x))/(1-x);

where A122045 is the Euler numbers.

...

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

A(x) = 2(1+x) - x/Series_Reversion(x*H(x));

A(x) = 2 - H( -x/(2 - A(x)) );

A(x) = H(-x/A(x));

H(x) = A(x*H(-x));

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

...

O.g.f.: A(x) = 2*(1+x) - B(x) where B(x) = g.f. of A157308.

EXAMPLE

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