COMMENTS

Radius of convergence of g.f. A(x) is r = (3/5)^(5/2) / 6 where A(r) = 5/3.

The two-parameter Fuss-Catalan sequence is A_n(p,r) := r*binomial(n*p + r, n)/(n*p + r). This sequence is 4^n*A_n(5/2,1). - Peter Bala, Oct 15 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = 4^n * binomial(5*n/2, n) / (3*n/2 + 1).

From Peter Bala, Oct 13 2015: (Start)

O.g.f. A(x) satisfies A(x) = C(4*x*sqrt(A)), where C(x) = (1 - sqrt(1 - 4*x))/(2*x) is the o.g.f. for the Catalan numbers A000108.

Sqrt(A(x)) = 1/x * series reversion( x/sqrt(C(4*x)) ) is the o.g.f. for A245112. (End)

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 4*x + 40*x^2 + 520*x^3 + 7680*x^4 + 122360*x^5 + 2050048*x^6 +... where A(x) = 1 + 4*x*A(x)^(5/2).

Radius of convergence: r = (3/5)^(5/2)/6 = 0.046475800...

Related expansions:

A(x)^(5/2) = 1 + 10*x + 130*x^2 + 1920*x^3 + 30590*x^4 + 512512*x^5 +...

A(x)^(1/2) = 1 + 2*x + 18*x^2 + 224*x^3 + 3230*x^4 + 50688*x^5 + 840420*x^6 + 14483456*x^7 + 256856886*x^8 +...
