COMMENTS

Hankel transform is A165206.

This sequence has the following conjectural description using cluster algebras. Consider the cyclic directed graph with n vertices as a cluster seed S of type D_n. Let S_n be the set of seeds that can be obtained from S by iterated mutation of the initial cluster variables in S. Mutations of other cluster variables are not allowed. Then the cardinality of S_n is apparently A165205(n). This can be checked from n=2 (4) to n=8 (8151). - F. Chapoton, Apr 03 2021

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+x)*C(x)^2/(1-x*C(x)^2) = (1+x)*(1 - sqrt(1-4*x))/(2*x* sqrt(1-4*x)), where C(x) is the g.f. of A000108.

Apparently (n+1)*(5*n-2) -2*(5*n+3)*(2*n-1)*a(n-1) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 25 2012
