COMMENTS

Radius of convergence is r = 1/5, where r = r^2/(1-4*r), with A(r) = 1.

Compare to a g.f. M(x) of Motzkin numbers: M(x)^2 = M(x^2/(1-2*x)) where M(x) = (1-x - sqrt(1-2*x-3*x^2))/(2*x).

FORMULA

G.f. also satisfies:

(1) A(x) = -A( -x/(1-4*x) ).

(2) A( x/(1+2*x) ) = -A( -x/(1-2*x) ), an odd function.

(3) A( x/(1+2*x) )^2 = A( x^2/(1-4*x^2) ), an even function.

(4) A(x)^4 = A( x^4/((1-4*x)*(1-4*x-4*x^2)) ).

(5) [x^(2*n+1)] (x/A(x))^(2*n) = 0 for n>=0.

(6) [x^(2^n+k)] (x/A(x))^(2^n) = 0 for k=1..2^n-1, n>=1.

Given g.f. A(x), let F(x) denote the g.f. of A264412, then:

(7) A(x) = F(A(x))^2 * x/(1+4*x),

(8) A(x) = F(A(x)^2) * x/(1-2*x),

(9)  A( x/(F(x)^2 - 4*x) ) = x,

(10) A( x/(F(x^2) + 2*x) ) = x,

where F(x)^2 = F(x^2) + 6*x.

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

Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n,k) * (-4)^(n-k) * a(k+1) = (-1)^n * a(n+1) for n>=0.

Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n,k) * (+4)^(n-k) * a(k+1) = A264232(n+1) for n>=0.

Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n,k) * (-8)^(n-k) * a(k+1) = (-1)^n * A264232(n+1) for n>=0.
