FORMULA

a(n+1) = Sum_{i=0..n} q^i*a(i)*a(n-i) with q=-4 and a(0)=1.

G.f. satisfies: A(x) = 1 / (1 - x*A(-4*x)) = 1/(1-x/(1+4*x/(1-4^2*x/(1+4^3*x/(1-...))))) (continued fraction). - Seiichi Manyama, Dec 27 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 + x - 3*x^2 - 55*x^3 + 3429*x^4 + 885137*x^5 + ...

MATHEMATICA

a[1] := 1; a[n_] := a[n] = Sum[(-4)^(i - 1)*a[i]*a[n - i], {i, 1, n - 1}]; Array[a, 20, 1] (* G. C. Greubel, Dec 24 2016 *)

  (1..n).each{|i| ary << (0..i - 1).inject(0){|s, j| s + q ** j * ary[j] * ary[i - 1 - j]}}
