Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

FORMULA

G.f.: A(x) = x/Series_Reversion(x*G(x)^2)) where G(x) = Sum_{n>=0} C(2n,n)^2*x^n = 1/agm(1, (1-16*x)^(1/2)) = g.f. of A002894 and G(x)^2 is the g.f. of A036917.

Self-convolution of A158101, which is a bisection of A158100; A158100 has g.f. F(x) that satisfies: F(x) = 1/AGM(1, 1 - 8*x/F(x) ).

a(n) = [x^n] AGM(1,(1-16x)^(1/2))^(2n-2)/(1-n) for n>1 where AGM is the arithmetic-geometric mean of Gauss. - Paul D. Hanna, Mar 20 2010]

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 8*x + 24*x^2 - 168*x^4 + 2112*x^6 - 32040*x^8 + ...

A(x) = G(x/A(x))^2 where G(x) = 1/AGM(1, (1-16x)^(1/2)) is the power series:

G(x) = 1 + 2^2*x + 6^2*x^2 + 20^2*x^3 + 70^2*x^4 + 252^2*x^5 + ... + C(2n,n)^2*x^n + ...

The square root of g.f. A(x) begins:

A(x)^(1/2) = 1 + 4*x + 4*x^2 - 16*x^3 - 28*x^4 + 176*x^5 + 336*x^6 + ... + A158101(n)*x^n + ...

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=local(G=sum(m=0, n, binomial(2*m, m)^2*x^m)+x*O(x^n)); polcoeff(x/serreverse(x*G^2), n)}

(PARI) {a(n)=if(n==1, 8, polcoeff(agm(1, sqrt(1-16*x +x^2*O(x^n)))^(2*n-2), n)/(1-n))} \\ Paul D. Hanna, Mar 20 2010
