COMMENTS

Compare the g.f. to the identity:

G(x) = Sum_{n>=0} 1/G(x)^n * Product_{k=1..n} (1 - 1/G(x)^k)

which holds for all power series G(x) such that G(0)=1.

FORMULA

G.f. satisfies: 1+x = A(y) where y = x - 3*x^2 + 11*x^4 + x^5 - 30*x^6 - 42*x^7 - 26*x^8 - 8*x^9 - x^10.

G.f. satisfies: x = Sum_{n>=1} 1/A(x)^(n*(n+9)/2) * Product_{k=1..n} (A(x)^k - 1).

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + 3*x^2 + 18*x^3 + 124*x^4 + 935*x^5 + 7443*x^6 +...

The g.f. satisfies:

x = (A(x)-1)/A(x)^5 + (A(x)-1)*(A(x)^2-1)/A(x)^11 + (A(x)-1)*(A(x)^2-1)*(A(x)^3-1)/A(x)^18 + (A(x)-1)*(A(x)^2-1)*(A(x)^3-1)*(A(x)^4-1)/A(x)^26 + (A(x)-1)*(A(x)^2-1)*(A(x)^3-1)*(A(x)^4-1)*(A(x)^5-1)/A(x)^35 +...
