%H Paul D. Hanna, <a href="/A179497/b179497.txt">Table of n, a(n), n=1..100.</a>

%F E.g.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x)^2/x equals the e.g.f. of column 0 in the matrix log of the Riordan array (A(x)/x, A(x)).

%F Let A_n(x) denote the n-th iteration of e.g.f. A(x) with A_0(x)=x,

%F then L=A(x)^2/x satisfies the series:

%F . A(x)/x = 1 + L + L*Dx(L)/2! + L*Dx(L*Dx(L))/3! + L*Dx(L*Dx(L*Dx(L)))/4! +...

%F . A_{-1}(x)/x = 1 - L + L*Dx(L)/2! - L*Dx(L*Dx(L))/3! + L*Dx(L*Dx(L*Dx(L)))/4! -+...

%F . A_n(x)/x = 1 + n*L + n^2*L*Dx(L)/2! + n^3*L*Dx(L*Dx(L))/3! + n^4*L*Dx(L*Dx(L*Dx(L)))/4! +...

%F where Dx(F) = d/dx(x*F).

%F Further, we have:

%F . [A_{n+1}(x)]^2 = A(x)^2*A_n'(x)

%F which holds for all n.

%e E.g.f.: A(x) = x + 2*x^2/2! + 18*x^3/3! + 312*x^4/4! + 8240*x^5/5! +..

%e Related expansions:

%e . A(x)/x = 1 + x + 6*x^2/2! + 78*x^3/3! + 1648*x^4/4! + 49500*x^5/5! +..

%e . A(x)^2/x = x + 4*x^2/2! + 42*x^3/3! + 768*x^4/4! + 20680*x^5/5! +..

%e . A'(x) = 1 + 2*x + 18*x^2/2! + 312*x^3/3! + 8240*x^4/4! +...

%e . A(A(x)) = x + 4*x^2/2! + 48*x^3/3! + 1008*x^4/4! + 30880*x^5/5! +...

%e . A(A(x))^2 = 2*x^2/2! + 24*x^3/3! + 480*x^4/4! + 13920*x^5/5! +...

%e Illustrate a main property of the iterations A_n(x) of A(x) by:

%e . [A_3(x)]^2 = A(x)^2 * A_2'(x);

%e . [A_4(x)]^2 = A(x)^2 * A_3'(x);

%e . [A_5(x)]^2 = A(x)^2 * A_4'(x); ...

%e which can be shown to hold by the chain rule of differentiation.
