FORMULA

G.f 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) +(-n+11)*a(n-2) +(47*n-154)*a(n-3) +4*(-16*n+65)*a(n-4) +24*(n-5)*a(n-5)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 02 2016

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2*1*5-2-1=7. a(3)=2*1*7-2+5^2-1-1=35. a(4)=2*1*35-2+2*5*7-2-1=135.

MAPLE

l:=-1: : k := -1 : m:=5:d(0):=1:d(1):=m: for n from 1 to 30 do d(n+1):=sum(d(p)*d(n-p)+k, p=0..n)+l:od :

taylor((1-sqrt(1-4*z*(d(0)-z*d(0)^2+z*m+(k+l)*z^2/(1-z)+k*z^2/(1-z)^2)))/(2*z), z=0, 30); seq(d(n), n=0..30);
