FORMULA

E.g.f. satisfies: d/dx A_n(x) = [A_n(x)^2 + A_n(x)^3]/(x^2 + x^3) where A_n(x) denotes the n-th iteration of e.g.f. A(x).

...

Define a triangular matrix where the e.g.f. of column k equals (A(x)/x)^k, then the matrix log is the matrix L with L(n+1,n)=L(n+2,n)=n+1 and zeros elsewhere.

a(n) ~ sqrt(1+r) * n^n * r^(n-1) / exp(n), where r = -1-LambertW(-1, -exp(-2)) = 2.146193220620582585237... is the root of the equation log(1+r)=r-1. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 04 2014

EXAMPLE

E.g.f. A(x) = x + 2*x^2/2! + 12*x^3/3! + 84*x^4/4! + 820*x^5/5! +...

Related expansions:

A(x)^2 + A(x)^3 = 2*x^2/2! + 18*x^3/3! + 192*x^4/4! + 2400*x^5/5! +...

A'(x) = 1 + 2*x + 12*x^2/2! + 84*x^3/3! + 820*x^4/4! + 9540*x^5/5! +...

A(x)/x = 1 + x + 4*x^2/2! + 21*x^3/3! + 164*x^4/4! + 1590*x^5/5! +...

...

Define a triangular matrix where the e.g.f. of column k equals A(x)^k:

1;

1, 1;

4/2!, 2, 1;

21/3!, 10/2!, 3, 1;

164/4!, 66/3!, 18/2!, 4, 1;

1590/5!, 592/4!, 141/3!, 28/2!, 5, 1;

18984/6!, 6500/5!, 1428/4!, 252/3!, 40/2!, 6, 1;

266154/7!, 85548/6!, 17430/5!, 2840/4!, 405/3!, 54/2!, 7, 1;

...

then the matrix log of the above matrix equals:

0;

1, 0;

1, 2, 0;

0, 2, 3, 0;

0, 0, 3, 4, 0;

0, 0, 0, 4, 5, 0;

0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 6, 0; ...
