COMMENTS

G.f. A(x) satisfies A(x)=1-2x+x*A(x)+x^2*A(x)+x^2*A(x)^2.

Hankel transform is the (essentially) (1,-1) Somos-4 sequence A174400.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-x-x^2-sqrt(1-2x-5x^2+10x^3+x^4))/(2x^2).

Conjecture: (n+2)*a(n) -(2*n+1)*a(n-1) +5*(1-n)*a(n-2) +5*(2*n-5)*a(n-3) +(n-4)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Sep 30 2012
