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 A291219 for a guide to related sequences.

FORMULA

G.f.: -((3 (-2 + 3 x + 2 x^2))/(-1 + 3 x + x^2)^2).

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 7*a(n-2) -6*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n >= 5.

a(n) = 3 * (((3-sqrt(13))/2)^n*(-3+sqrt(13))*(-39+17*sqrt(13)-39*n) + 2^(-n)*(3+sqrt(13))^(1+n)*(39+17*sqrt(13)+39*n)) / 338. - Colin Barker, Aug 26 2017
