FORMULA

G.f.: 1 / ( Sum_{k>=0} (2*k-1)!! * x^k ).

a(n) = -A000698(n) if n > 0.

G.f. A(x) = 1 - x * B(x) * C(x) where B = g.f. for A001147 and C = g.f. for A005416.

G.f.: A(x) = 1 - x/W(0); W(k) = 1 + x + x*2k - x*(2k+3)/W(k+1); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Nov 17 2011

From Paul D. Hanna, Mar 03 2012: (Start)

G.f. A(x) satisfies:

(1) A(x) = 1 - x*A(x)^2 * [d/dx x/A(x)^2].

(2) [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-2) = [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-1) for n>=2.

(3) [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-1) = -(2*n-1)*A000699(n) for n>=1.  (End)

G.f. A(x) = G(0) where G(k)=  1 - x*(2*k+1)/(1 - (2*k+2)*x/G(k+1)); (continued fraction, 2-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 11 2012

G.f. A(x)=1-x/Q(0) where Q(k)= 1 - (k+2)*x/Q(k+1); (continued fraction, 1-step). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 20 2012

G.f. A(x) = G(0) where G(k)= 1 - x*(k+1)/G(k+1); (continued fraction, 1-step).- Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 28 2012

G.f.: 1/(1 + x*(Q(0) - 1)/(x+1)) where Q(k)= 1 + (2*k+1)/(1-x/(x + 1/Q(k+1) )); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Apr 11 2013

G.f.: Q(0), where Q(k)= 1 + (k+1)*sqrt(x) - sqrt(x)/(1-sqrt(x)*(k+1)/Q(k+1)); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Apr 18 2013

G.f.: Q(0), where Q(k)= 1 + (2*k+1)*x - 2*x*(k+1)/Q(k+1); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 02 2013

G.f.: G(0)/2, where G(k)= 1 + 1/(1 - 2*x*(2*k+1)/(2*x*(2*k+1) - 1 + 2*x*(2*k+2)/G(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, May 29 2013

a(n) ~ -n^n * 2^(n+1/2) / exp(n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 23 2014

EXAMPLE

1 - x - 2*x^2 - 10*x^3 - 74*x^4 - 706*x^5 - 8162*x^6 - 110410*x^7 - ...

From Paul D. Hanna, Mar 03 2012: (Start)

The coefficients in A(x)^n begin:

n=1: [1,  -1, -2, -10,  -74,  -706,  -8162, -110410, ...];

n=2: [1,  -2,(-3),-16, -124, -1224, -14516, -200192, ...];

n=3: [1,  -3,(-3),-19, -156, -1596, -19412, -272772, ...];

n=4: [1,  -4, -2,(-20),-175, -1856, -23136, -331008, ...];

n=5: [1,  -5,  0,(-20),-185, -2031, -25920, -377280, ...];

n=6: [1,  -6,  3, -20,(-189),-2142, -27951, -413568, ...];

n=7: [1,  -7,  7, -21,(-189),-2205, -29379, -441519, ...];

n=8: [1,  -8, 12, -24, -186,(-2232),-30324, -462504, ...];

n=9: [1,  -9, 18, -30, -180,(-2232),-30882, -477666, ...];

n=10:[1, -10, 25, -40, -170, -2212,(-31130),-487960, ...];

n=11:[1, -11, 33, -55, -154, -2178,(-31130),-494186, ...]; ...

where the coefficients in parenthesis demonstrate the properties:

(2) [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-2) = [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-1) for n>=2,

(3) [x^n] A(x)^(2*n-1) = -(2*n-1)*A000699(n) for n>=1:

A000699 = [1/1, 3/3, 20/5, 189/7, 2232/9, 31130/11, ...].

Note: g.f. of A000699, G(x), satisfies: G(x) = x + x^2*[d/dx G(x)^2/x].
