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) +(-13*n+35)*a(n-2) +(67*n-206)*a(n-3) +4*(-19*n+77)*a(n-4) +28*(n-5)*a(n-5)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 02 2016

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2*1*8+2-1=17. a(3)=2*1*17+2+64+1-1=100.

MAPLE
