 OFFSET 0,3 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 FORMULA a(-n) = a(n). a(n) = (-1)^n * A002002(n) if n>0. a(n) = (-1)^n * A026003(2*n - 1) if n>0. G.f.: 1 / ( 1 + x / (1 + 4*x / (1 - x^2 / (1 + 4*x / (1 - x^2 / (1 + 4*x / ...)))))). - Michael Somos, Jan 03 2013 a(n) = (-1)^n*Sum_{k=0..n} A253283(n,k). - Peter Luschny, Mar 23 2015 From Peter Bala, Jun 17 2015: (Start) a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..n} (-2)^k*binomial(n,k)*binomial(n+k-1,k) = (-1)^n*Sum_{k = 0..n-1} binomial(n,k+1)*binomial(n+k,k) = -Sum_{k = 0..n-1} (-2)^k*binomial(n-1,k)*binomial(n+k,k). a(n) = -R(n-1,-2) for n >= 1, where R(n,x) denotes the n-th row polynomial of A178301. a(n) = [x^n] ((x - 1)/(1 - 2*x))^n. Cf. A001003(n) =  (-1)^(n+1)/(n+1)*[x^n] ((x - 1)/(1 - 2*x))^(n+1). O.g.f.: 1/2 + 1/2*(1 + x)/sqrt(1 + 6*x + x^2). exp( Sum_{n >= 1} a(n)*(-x)^n/n ) = 1 + x + 3*x^2 + 11*x^3 + 45*x^4 + ... is the o.g.f. for A001003. Recurrence: n*(3 - 2*n )*a(n) = 2*(6*n^2 - 12*n + 5)*a(n-1) + (2*n - 1)*(n - 2)*a(n-2) with a(0) = 1, a(1) = -1. (End) EXAMPLE G.f. = 1 - x + 5*x^2 - 25*x^3 + 129*x^4 - 681*x^5 + 3653*x^6 - 19825*x^7 + ...
