(End) From Karol A. Penson, Apr 06 2022: (Start) a(n) = Integral_{x=0...256/27} x^n*W(x), where W(x) = (sqrt(2)/Pi)*(h1(x) - h2(x) + h3(x)) and h1(x) = 3F2([-6/12,-2/12,  2/12], [ 3/12,  9/12], (27*x)/256)/((x/2)^(1/2)); h2(x) = 3F2([-3/12, 1/12,  5/12], [ 6/12, 15/12], (27*x)/256)/(x^(1/4)); h3(x) = 3F2([ 3/12, 7/12, 11/12], [18/12, 21/12], (27*x)/256)/(x^(-1/4)*32). This integral representation is unique as the solution of n-th Hausdorff power moment of the function W. Using only the definition of a(n), W(x) can be proven to be positive. W(x) is singular at x = 0 and for x > 0 is monotonically decreasing to zero at x = 256/27. (End) EXAMPLE G.f. = 1 + x + 3*x^2 + 13*x^3 + 68*x^4 + 399*x^5 + 2530*x^6 + 16965*x^7 + ...
