FORMULA

G.f.: sqrt(1-4*x)/(1+x).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^(n-k)*C(2k,k)/(1-2k).

Conjecture: n*a(n) +3*(2-n)*a(n-1) +2*(3-2*n)*a(n-2) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 16 2011.

G.f. A(x)=1/G(0); where G(k)= 1 + x/(1 - (4*k+2)/((4*k+2) + (k+1)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction 3rd kind, 3-step ). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jul 24 2012

G.f.: 2/(1+x)/G(0), where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - 2*x*(2*k+1)/(2*x*(2*k+1) + (k+1)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 24 2013

a(n) = binomial(2*n,n) * hypergeom([1, -n], [1/2], 5/4). - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Oct 02 2016

a(n) ~ -2^(2*n+1) / (5*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 03 2016
