COMMENTS

Suppose s = (c(0), c(1), c(2), ...) is a sequence and p(S) is a polynomial. Let S(x) = c(0)*x + c(1)*x^2 + c(2)*x^3 + ... and T(x) = (-p(0) + 1/p(S(x)))/x. The p-INVERT of s is the sequence t(s) of coefficients in the Maclaurin series for T(x). Taking p(S) = 1 - S gives the "INVERT" transform of s, so that p-INVERT is a generalization of the "INVERT" transform (e.g., A033453).

See A290890 for a guide to related sequences.

FORMULA

G.f.: (3 - 8 x + 3 x^2)/(1 - 7 x + 14 x^2 - 7 x^3 + x^4).

a(n) = 7*a(n-1) - 14*a(n-2) + 7*a(n-3) - a(n-4).
