FORMULA

Alternative form of e.g.f: sqrt(sec(2*x) + tan(2*x)) = 1 + x + x^2/2! + 5*x^3/3! + 17*x^4/4! + ... (where sec(x)=1/cos(x)). - Peter Bala, Jan 11 2011

a(n) = 2^n*Z(n,1/2), where Z(n,x) is the n-th zigzag polynomial as defined in A147309.

Put y = x*log(x)/4. The connection between the expansion sqrt(2/(1+x^x)) = 1 - y - y^2/2! + 5*y^3/3! + 17*y^4/4! - 121*y^5/5! ... and the present sequence is explained in the answer to Math StackExchange Question 6939. - Peter Bala, Jul 10 2011

exp(arctanh(tan(x))) = sqrt( (1 + tan(x))/(1 - tan(x) ) ) = sqrt( tan(x+pi/4) ). - David Callan, Dec 13 2011

a(n) ~ 2^(2*n+3/2) * n^n / (Pi^(n+1/2) * exp(n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 23 2013

E.g.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x) = exp( Integral (A(x)^2 + A(-x)^2)/2 dx ). - Paul D. Hanna, Feb 04 2017

E.g.f. A(x) satisfies: A'(x) = A(x) * (A(x)^2 + A(-x)^2)/2. - Paul D. Hanna, Feb 04 2017
