This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing. Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,3 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). In the following guide to p-INVERT sequences using s = (1,3,5,7,9,...) = A005408, in some cases t(1,3,5,7,9,...) is a shifted (or differently indexed) version of the cited sequence: p(S) *********** t(1,3,5,7,9,...) 1 - S               A003946 1 - S^2             A292480 1 - S^3             (not yet in OEIS) (1 - S)^2           (not yet in OEIS) (1 - S)^3           (not yet in OEIS) 1 - S - S^2         A289786 1 + S - S^2         A289484 1 - S - 2 S^2       A289785 1 - S - 3 S^2       A289786 1 - S - 4 S^2       A289787 1 - S - 5 S^2       A289788 1 - S - 6 S^2       A289789 1 - S - 7 S^2       A289790 1 + S - 2 S^2       A289791 1 - S + S^2 - S^3   A289792 1 + S - 3 S^2       A289793 1 - S - S^2 - S^3   A289794 LINKS Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-5,6) FORMULA G.f.: x*(1 + x)^2/((1 - 3*x)*(1 - x + 2*x^2)). a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2) + 6*a(n-3) for n >= 5.
