FORMULA

E.g.f. A(x) satisfies:

(1) A(x - x*tanh(x)) = x.

(2) A(x) = x + Sum_{n>=1} d^(n-1)/dx^(n-1) x^n*tanh(x)^n/n!.

(3) A(x) = x*exp( Sum_{n>=1} d^(n-1)/dx^(n-1) x^(n-1)*tanh(x)^n/n! ).

(4) A(x) = Sum_{n>=1} n^(n-1) * cosh(n*x) * x^n / n!. - Paul D. Hanna, Nov 20 2012

(5) A(x) = log(G(x)) where G(x) = exp(x*(1+G(x)^2)/2) is the e.g.f. of A202617. - Paul D. Hanna, Nov 20 2012

a(n) = n*A201595(n-1).

a(n) = (1/2)*Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n,k)*k^(n-1).

a(n) = (n-1)! * [x^n] x/(1 - tanh(x))^n.

a(n) = A038049(n)/2. - R. J. Mathar, Peter Bala, Mar 24 2013

a(n) ~ 1/2 * n^(n-1) * sqrt((1+LambertW(1/exp(1)))) / (exp(1)*LambertW(1/exp(1)))^n. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 17 2013

EXAMPLE

E.g.f.: A(x) = x + 2*x^2/2! + 12*x^3/3! + 112*x^4/4! + 1440*x^5/5! +...

Related expansions:

A(x) = x + x*tanh(x) + d/dx x^2*tanh(x)^2/2! + d^2/dx^2 x^3*tanh(x)^3/3! + d^3/dx^3 x^4*tanh(x)^4/4! +...

log(A(x)/x) = tanh(x) + d/dx x*tanh(x)^2/2! + d^2/dx^2 x^2*tanh(x)^3/3! + d^3/dx^3 x^3*tanh(x)^4/4! +...

A(x)/x = 1 + x + 4*x^2/2! + 28*x^3/3! + 288*x^4/4! + 3936*x^5/5! + 67328*x^6/6! +...+ A201595(n)*x^n/n! +...

tanh(A(x)) = x + 2*x^2/2! + 10*x^3/3! + 88*x^4/4! + 1096*x^5/5! + 17616*x^6/6! + 346704*x^7/7! + 8072576*x^8/8! +...
