FORMULA

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

(1) A(x - 1 + exp(-x^2)) = x.

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

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

Lim sup n->infinity (|a(n)|/n!)^(1/n) = 1/abs(-1-(LambertW(-1/2)-1) / sqrt(-2*LambertW(-1/2))) = 3.19002880735268... - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jan 11 2014

EXAMPLE

E.g.f.: A(x) = x + 2*x^2/2! + 12*x^3/3! + 108*x^4/4! + 1320*x^5/5! +...

where

exp(-A(x)^2) = 1 - 2*x^2/2! - 12*x^3/3! - 108*x^4/4! - 1320*x^5/5! -...

The e.g.f. equals the series:

A(x) = x + (1 - exp(-x^2)) + d/dx (1 - exp(-x^2))^2/2! + d^2/dx^2 (1 - exp(-x^2))^3/3! + d^3/dx^3 (1 - exp(-x^2))^4/4! + d^4/dx^4 (1 - exp(-x^2))^5/5! +...

Also,

log(A(x)/x) = (1 - exp(-x^2))/x + d/dx (1 - exp(-x^2))^2/(2!*x) + d^2/dx^2 (1 - exp(-x^2))^3/(3!*x) + d^3/dx^3 (1 - exp(-x^2))^4/(4!*x) +...
