FORMULA

Limit n->infinity a(n)^(1/n^2) = r^(2*r^2/(1-2*r)) = 2.3520150420944489879258119..., where r = 0.70350607643066243... (see A220359) is the root of the equation (1-r)^(2*r-1) = r^(2*r). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 03 2014

EXAMPLE

L.g.f.: L(x) = 2*x + 6*x^2/2 + 92*x^3/3 + 5410*x^4/4 + 1400652*x^5/5 +...

where exponentiation yields A206155:

exp(L(x)) = 1 + 2*x + 5*x^2 + 38*x^3 + 1425*x^4 + 283002*x^5 + 448468978*x^6 +...

Illustration of initial terms:

a(1) = 1^0 + 1^2 = 2;

a(2) = 1^0 + 2^2 + 1^4 = 6;

a(3) = 1^0 + 3^2 + 3^4 + 1^6 = 92;

a(4) = 1^0 + 4^2 + 6^4 + 4^6 + 1^8 = 5410;

a(5) = 1^0 + 5^2 + 10^4 + 10^6 + 5^8 + 1^10 = 1400652; ...
