%F G.f. satisfies: A(x) = 1 + x*A(x)*A(1-1/A(x)).

%F G.f.: A(x*g(x)) = g(x) = (1-1/A(x))/x where g(x) is the g.f. of A088714.

%F From _Paul D. Hanna_, Dec 06 2009: (Start)

%F G.f. satisfies: A(x) = 1 + A(x)*Series_Reversion(x/A(x)).

%F G.f. satisfies: A( (x/(1+x)) / A(x/(1+x)) ) = 1 + x.

%F Logarithmic derivative: given g.f. A(x), let G(x) = A(x*G(x)) be the g.f. of A088714, then A'(x)/A(x) = (G(x) + x*G'(x)) / (1 - x*G(x)).

%e G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 6*x^3 + 24*x^4 + 118*x^5 + 674*x^6 +...

%e Illustration of logarithmic derivation.

%e If we form an array of coefficients of x^k in A(x)^n, n>=1, like so:

%e A^1: [1],1, 2, 6, 24, 118, 674, 4308, ...;

%e A^2: [1, 2], 5, 16, 64, 308, 1716, 10724, ...;

%e A^3: [1, 3, 9], 31, 126, 600, 3278, 20070, ...;

%e A^4: [1, 4, 14, 52], 217, 1032, 5560, 33440, ...;

%e A^5: [1, 5, 20, 80, 345], 1651, 8820, 52270, ...;

%e A^6: [1, 6, 27, 116, 519, 2514],13385, 78420, ...;

%e A^7: [1, 7, 35, 161, 749, 3689, 19663], 114269, ...; ...

%e then the sums of the coefficients of x^k, k=0..n-1, in A(x)^n (shown above in brackets) begin:

%e 1 = 1;

%e 1 + 2 = 3;

%e 1 + 3 + 9 = 13;

%e 1 + 4 + 14 + 52 = 71;

%e 1 + 5 + 20 + 80 + 345 = 451;

%e 1 + 6 + 27 + 116 + 519 + 2514 = 3183;

%e 1 + 7 + 35 + 161 + 749 + 3689 + 19663 = 24305; ...

%e and equal the coefficients in log(A(x)):

%e log(A(x)) = x + 3*x^2/2 + 13*x^3/3 + 71*x^4/4 + 451*x^5/5 + 3183*x^6/6 + 24305*x^7/7 + 197551*x^8/8 +...

%e The main diagonal in the above table forms the g.f. G(x) of A088714:

%e [1/1, 2/2, 9/3, 52/4, 345/5, 2514/6, 19663/7, ...]

%e where G(x) = 1 + x + 3*x^2 + 13*x^3 + 69*x^4 + 419*x^5 + 2809*x^6 +...

%e satisfies A'(x)/A(x) = (G(x) + x*G'(x)) / (1 - x*G(x)).
