COMMENTS

Given n, consider the series s(n) = li(-n,-1/3) = SUM((-1)^k (k^n)/3^k) for k=0,1,2,... . Then a(n)=s(n)*(4^(n+1))/3. For more details, see A212846.

FORMULA

Recurrence: s(n+1)=(-1/4)*SUM(C(n+1,i)*s(i)), where i=0,1,2,...,n, C(n,m) are binomial coefficients, and the starting value is s(0)=SUM((-1/3)^k)=3/4.

From Peter Bala, Mar 12 2013: (Start)

E.g.f.: A(x) = 4/(3 + exp(4*x)) = 1 - x - 2*x^2/2! + 2*x^3/3! + 40*x^4/4! + ....

The compositional inverse (A(-x) - 1)^(-1) = x + 2*x^2/2 + 7*x^3/3 + 20*x^4/4 + 61*x^5/5 + ... is the logarithmic generating function for A015518.

Recurrence equation: a(n+1) = -4*a(n) + 3*sum {k = 0..n} binomial(n,k)*a(k)*a(n-k), with a(0) = 1.

(End)

G.f.: 1 + x/Q(0), where Q(k) = 2*x*(k+1) - 1 + 3*x^2*(k+1)*(k+2)/Q(k+1) ; (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Sep 22 2013

G.f.: 1/Q(0), where Q(k) = 1 + x*(k+1)/( 1 - 3*x*(k+1)/Q(k+1) ); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 17 2013

E.g.f.: 2 - W(0), where W(k) = 1 + x/( 4*k+1 - x/( 1 + 4*x/( 4*k+3 - 4*x/W(k+1) ))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Oct 22 2014
