(Table A.4) FORMULA Let f, g, S1 and S3 be given by f(t) = sqrt(1-4*t), g(t) = sqrt(1+4*t), S1(t) = (1+f(t)-2*f(t)^2)*(1- f(t))^5/(t^3*(f(t)^2-f(t))^2*(2+f(t)+g(t))^2), S3(t) = 4*(1-f(t))^2*(1 -g(t))^2*(f(t)^2-(1+2*t)*f(t)-(1-6*t)*g(t)+f(t)*g(t))/(t^3*(2+f(t)+ g(t))^2*(g(t)^2-f(t)-g(t)+ f(t)*g(t))^2). Now let W(t) be given by W(t) = (S1(t) + S1(-t) + S3(t) + S3(-t))/4. The g.f. is the expansion of W(t). - G. C. Greubel, Jan 17 2019 EXAMPLE G.f. = 12*t^2 + 284*t^4 + 5436*t^6 + 96768*t^8 + ... - G.
