FORMULA

G.f.: (1 - sqrt(1 - 4*x + 4*x^3)) / 2. Satisfies A(x) - A(x)^2 = x - x^3 - Michael Somos, Aug 04, 2000.

Comment from Gary W. Adamson, Oct 27 2008: Given an integer t >= 1 and initial values u = [a_0, a_1, ..., a_{t-1}], we may define an infinite sequence Phi(u) by setting a_n = a_{n-1} + a_0*a_{n-1} + a_1*a_{n-2} + ... + a_{n-2}*a_1 for n >= t. For example Phi([1]) is the Catalan numbers A000108. The present sequence is Phi([1,1,1]).

Row sums of A176703 if offset 0. - Michael Somos, Jan 09 2012

a(n+2) = A056010(n) if n >= 0.

Conjecture: n*a(n) +(n+1)*a(n-1) +10*(-2*n+5)*a(n-2) +2*(2*n-9)*a(n-3) +10*(2*n-11)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

a(n)=sum(m=0..floor((n-1)/2), C(n-2*m-1)*binomial(n-2*m,m)*(-1)^m), where C = A000108 are the Catalan numbers.  [Vladimir Kruchinin, Jan 26 2013]
