FORMULA

G.f. satisfies: A(x) = Sum_{n>=0} A000108(n+1)*A000984(n)*x^n/A(x)^(2n), where A000108 is the Catalan numbers and A000984 is the central binomial coefficients.

Self-convolution equals A172391.

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 4*x - 2*x^2 + 8*x^3 - 20*x^4 + 96*x^5 - 324*x^6 +...

A(x)^2 = 1 + 8*x + 12*x^2 + 28*x^4 + 264*x^6 + 3720*x^8 +...

where A(x)^2 equals the g.f. of A172391:

A172391=[1,8,12,0,28,0,264,0,3720,0,63840,0,1232432,0,25731216,0,...].

Let G(x) = A(x*G(x)^2) = Sum_{n>=0} C(2n+2,n+1)/(n+2)*C(2n,n)*x^n:

G(x) = 1 + 2*2*x + 5*6*x^2 + 14*20*x^3 + 42*70*x^4 + 132*252*x^5 +...
