COMMENTS

Also numerators of g.f. c(x/2) = (1-sqrt(1-2x))/x where c(x) = g.f. of A000108. - Paul Barry, Sep 04 2007

Also numerator of x(n)=Sum(x(k)*x(n-k-1):0<=k<n), x(0)=1/2: x(n)=a(n)/A086117(n). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 06 2008

Also numerator of (1/Pi)*int(x^n*sqrt((1-x)/x), x=0..1). - Groux Roland, Mar 17 2011

The negative of this sequence appears in the A-sequence of the Riordan triangle A084930 as numerators  4, -2, -seq(a(n-1), n >= 2). The denominators look like 1, seq(A120777(n-1), n >= 1). - Wolfdieter Lang, Aug 04 2014

The series of a(n)/A046161(n+1) is absolutely convergent to 1. - Ralf Steiner, Feb 09 2017

FORMULA

Numerators of g.f.: 1/(1+sqrt(1-x)).

a(n) = A000108(n) / 2^A048881(n).

EXAMPLE

1/(1+sqrt(1-x)) = 1/2 + 1/8*x + 1/16*x^2 + 5/128*x^3 + 7/256*x^4 +...

MAPLE

a:= n-> abs(numer(binomial(1/2, n+1))): seq(a(n), n=0..50); # Alois P. Heinz, Apr 10 2009
