FORMULA

a(n) = (6*n - 4) * a(n-1) - Sum_{k=1..n-1} a(k) * a(n-k) if n>1. - Michael Somos, Jul 24 2011

G.f.: x / (1 - 7*x / (1 - 5*x / (1 - 13*x / (1 - 11*x / (1 - 19*x / (1 - 17*x / ... )))))). - Michael Somos, Jan 03 2013

a(n) = 3/(2*Pi^2)*int((4*x)^((3*n-1)/2)/(Ai'(x)^2+Bi'(x)^2), x=0..inf), where Ai'(x), Bi'(x) are the derivatives of the Airy functions. [Vladimir Reshetnikov, Sep 24 2013]

a(n) ~ 6^n * (n-1)! / (2*Pi) [Martin + Kearney, 2011, p.16]. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 19 2015

6*x^2*y' = y^2 - (2*x-1)*y - x, where y(x) = Sum_{n>=1} a(n)*x^n. - Gheorghe Coserea, May 12 2017

G.f.: x/(1 - 2*x - 5*x/(1 - 7*x/(1 - 11*x/(1 - 13*x/(1 - ... - (6*n - 1)*x/(1 - (6*n + 1)*x/(1 - .... Cf. A062980. - Peter Bala, May 21 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 7*x^2 + 84*x^3 + 1463*x^4 + 33936*x^5 + 990542*x^6 + 34938624*x^7 + ...

a(2) = 7 since (6*2 - 4) * a(2-1) - (a(1) * a(2-1)) = 7.

MATHEMATICA

a[1] = 1; a[n_]:= a[n] = (6*n-4)*a[n-1] - Sum[a[k]*a[n-k], {k, 1, n-1}]; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 20}] (* Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 19 2015 *)

PROG

(PARI) {a(n) = local(A); if( n<1, 0, A = vector(n); A[1] = 1; for( k=2, n, A[k] = (6 * k - 4) * A[k-1] - sum( j=1, k-1, A[j] * A[k-j])); A[n])} /* Michael Somos, Jul 24 2011 */

(PARI)

S(v1, v2, v3, N=16) = {

  my(a = vector(N)); a[1] = 1;

  for (n = 2, N, a[n] = (v1*n+v2)*a[n-1] + v3*sum(j=1, n-1, a[j]*a[n-j])); a;

};

S(6, -4, -1)

\\ test: y = x*Ser(S(6, -4, -1, 201)); 6*x^2*y' == y^2 - (2*x-1)*y - x
