FORMULA

G.f.: A(x) = sqrt( x/Series_Reversion( x/AGM(1,1-8*x) ) ).

Self-convolution equals A158100.

Quadrasections are A158212(n) = A158122(4n) and A158213 = A158122(4n+1);

let B(x), C(x), be the g.f.s of A158212 and A158213, respectively,

then C(x) = 2/B(x) so that

A(x) = B(x^4) + x*C(x^4) = B(x^4) + 2*x/B(x^4) = 2/C(x^4) + x*C(x^4). (End)

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 2*x + 2*x^4 - 4*x^5 - 16*x^8 + 40*x^9 + 200*x^12 -+...

A(x)^2 = 1 + 4*x + 4*x^2 + 4*x^4 - 16*x^6 - 28*x^8 + 176*x^10 +...

Contribution from Paul D. Hanna, Mar 14 2009: (Start)

G.f. of quadrasection A158212 is:

B(x) = 1 + 2*x - 16*x^2 + 200*x^3 - 3006*x^4 + 49956*x^5 +...;

G.f. of quadrasection A158213 is C(x) = 2/B(x):

C(x) = 2 - 4*x + 40*x^2 - 544*x^3 + 8540*x^4 - 145720*x^5 +...

where g.f. A(x) = B(x^4) + x*C(x^4) = B(x^4) + 2*x/B(x^4). (End)
