FORMULA

With c(t) = (1 - sqrt(1-4*t))/(2*t), d(t) = (1 -(1+2*t)*sqrt(1-4*t) -(1 - 2*t)*sqrt(1+4*t) + sqrt(1-16*t^2))/(4*t^2), and  g(t, r) = d(t)*t^(r + 1)*c(t)^(r + 3) then the g.f. is given by the even terms in the expansion of g(t,3) = 1*t^4 + 28*t^6 + 462*t^8 + 6832*t^10 + ... - G. C. Greubel, Jan 16 2019

MATHEMATICA

c[t_]:= (1-Sqrt[1-4*t])/(2*t); d[t_]:= (1-(1+2*t)*Sqrt[1-4*t] -(1- 2*t)*Sqrt[1+4*t] + Sqrt[1-16*t^2])/(4*t^2); g[t_, r_]:= d[t]*t^(r+1)*c[t]^(r+3); Drop[CoefficientList[Series[g[t, 3], {t, 0, 60}], t][[1;; ;; 2]], 2] (* G. C. Greubel, Jan 16 2019 *)
