COMMENTS
More generally, coefficients of (1+m*x - sqrt(m^2*x^2-(2*m+4)*x+1) )/((2*m+2)*x) are given by: a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (m+1)^k*N(n,k).
The Hankel transform of this sequence is 7^C(n+1,2). - Philippe Deléham, Oct 29 2007
From Gary W. Adamson, Jul 08 2011: (Start)
a(n) = upper left term in M^n, M = the production matrix:
1, 1
7, 7, 7
1, 1, 1, 1
7, 7, 7, 7, 7
1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1
...
(End)
Shifts left when INVERT transform applied seven times. - Benedict W. J. Irwin, Feb 07 2016
G.f.: 1/(1 - x/(1 - 7*x/(1 - x/(1 - 7*x/(1 - x/(1 - ...)))))), a continued fraction. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Apr 21 2017

a(n) = (8*(2*n-1)*a(n-1) - 36*(n-2)*a(n-2))/(n+1) for n>=2, a(0) = a(1) = 1. - Philippe Deléham, Aug 19 2005
