 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Image of c(x), the g.f. of the Catalan numbers A000108 under the mapping g(x) -> (1+4x)g(x(1+4x)). In general, the image of the Catalan numbers under the mapping g(x)->(1+i*x)g(x(1+i*x)) is given by a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} i^(n-k)C(k)C(k+1,n-k). More generally, the sequence C for which C(0)=a, C(1)=b and C(n+1) = sum(C(k)*C(n-k),k=0..n) has the following g.f. f: f(z) = (1-sqrt(1-4*z*(a-(a^2-b)*z)))/(2*z). We obtain: C(n)=(sum(-1)^(p-1)*2^{n-p}a^{n-2*p-1}*(a^2-b)^p*((2*n-2*p-1)*...*5*3*1/(p!*(n-2*p+1)!)),p=0..floor((n+1)/2)). By following Comtet [Analyse Combinatoire Tomes 1 et 2, PUF, Paris 1970], we obtain also: (n+1)*C(n) - 2*a*(2*n-1)*C(n-1) + 4*(n-2)*(a^2-b)*C(n-2) = 0. - Richard Choulet, Dec 17 2009 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200 FORMULA G.f.: (1-sqrt(1-4x(1+4x))/(2x); a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} 4^(n-k)*C(k)*C(k+1, n-k).
