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.: (-4 + 5 x + 6 x^2 - 5 x^3 - 4 x^4)/((-1 + x + x^2)^2 (-1 + 2 x + x^2)).

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