(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A176829 Sequence defined by the recurrence formula a(n+1)=sum(a(p)*a(n-p)+k,p=0..n)+l for n>=1, with here a(0)=1, a(1)=3, k=1 and l=-1. 1

FORMULA

G.f.: f(z) = (1-sqrt(1-4*z*(a(0)-z*a(0)^2+z*a(1)+(k+l)*z^2/(1-z)+k*z^2/(1-z)^2)))/(2*z) (k=1, l=-1).

Conjecture: (n+1)*a(n) +(-7*n+2)*a(n-1) +(7*n-5)*a(n-2) +(7*n-26)*a(n-3) +4*(-4*n+17)*a(n-4) +8*(n-5)*a(n-5)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 18 2016

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2*1*3+2-1=7. a(3)=2*1*7+2+3^2+1-1=25. a(4)=2*1*25+2+2*3*7+2-1=95.

MAPLE
