FORMULA
G.f.: (1/(2*x)) * (1 - x^2 - sqrt((1 - x^2)^2 - 4*x*(1 - x^2))).
G.f.: C(x/(1-x^2)) where C(x) is the g.f. of A000108. - Paul Barry, Apr 12 2005
G.f.: 1/(1-z/(1-z/(1-z/(...)))) where z=x/(1-x^2) (continued fraction); this is a special case of the previous formula. - Joerg Arndt, Mar 18 2011
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} C(n-k,k)*C(n-2k) - Sum_{k=0..floor((n-2)/2)} C(n-k-2,k)*C(n-2k-2). - Paul Barry, Nov 30 2008
From Paul Barry, May 27 2009: (Start)
G.f.: 1+x/(1-2x-2x^2/(1-x-2x^2/(1-2x-x^2/(1-2x-2x^2/(1-x-2x^2/(1-2x-x^2/(1-2x-2x^2/(1-x-2x^2/(1-... (continued fraction).
a(n) = 0^n + Sum_{k=0..floor((n-1)/2)} C(n-k-1,k)*A000108(n-2k). (End)
G.f.: M(F(x)) where F(x) is the g.f. of A000045, M(x) is the g.f. A001006. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Sep 06 2010
G.f. A(x) satisfies: A(x) = 1 + x/(1-x^2) * A(x)^2. - Paul D. Hanna, Jul 04 2018
G.f. A(x) satisfies: Sum_{n>=0} log( (1 - (-1)^n*x)/A(x) )^n / n! = 1. - Paul D. Hanna, Jul 04 2018
a(n) ~ 5^(1/4) * phi^(3*n) / (sqrt(2*Pi) * n^(3/2)), where phi = A001622 = (1 + sqrt(5))/2 is the golden ratio. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 04 2018
MATHEMATICA
a[n_] := a[n] = (1/2)Sum[Sum[a[j]a[i -j], {j, 0, i}](1 + (-1)^(n+1+i)), {i, 0, n}]; a[0] = 1; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 10}]
