LINKS

G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

FORMULA

a(n+2) = 2*A001006(n).

a(n) = 0^n + 2*Sum_{k=0..floor((n-2)/2)} C(n-2,2k)*A000108(k).

0 = a(n) * (9*a(n+1) + 15*a(n+2) - 12*a(n+3)) + a(n+1) * (-3*a(n+1) + 10*a(n+2) - 5*a(n+3)) + a(n+2) * (a(n+2) + a(n+3)) if n>0. - Michael Somos, Jan 25 2014

Conjecture: n*a(n) +(-2*n+3)*a(n-1) +3*(-n+3)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 19 2014

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + 2*x^2 + 2*x^3 + 4*x^4 + 8*x^5 + 18*x^6 + 42*x^7 + 102*x^8 + 254*x^9 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[ n_] := SeriesCoefficient[ 2 - x - Sqrt[1 - 2 x - 3 x^2], {x, 0, n}] (* Michael Somos, Jan 25 2014 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = polcoeff( 2 - x - sqrt(1 - 2*x - 3*x^2 + x * O(x^n)), n)} /* Michael Somos, Jan 25 2014 */
