FORMULA
a(n) = 2*A120955(n) for n>=2.
G.f. A(x) satisfies:
(1) A( 2x/(A(x) + 1+x) ) = (A(x) + 1+x)/2.
(2) A(x) = F(x*A(x)) and F(x) = A(x/F(x)) where F(x) = g.f. of A120955.
(3) A(x) = (1 + A(x*A(x))) / (2-x).
(4) A(x) = 1 + Sum_{n>=0} G_n(x)/2^(n+1) where G(x)=x*A(x) and G_{n+1}(x) = G_n(x*A(x)) denotes iteration with G_0(x)=x. [From Paul D. Hanna, Sep 04 2010]
EXAMPLE
A(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 8*x^3 + 50*x^4 + 412*x^5 + 4120*x^6 +...
The g.f. of A120955 is:
x/series_reversion(x*A(x)) = 1 + x + x^2 + 4*x^3 + 25*x^4 + 206*x^5 +...
Compare terms to see that A120955(n) = a(n)/2 for n>=2.
A(x*A(x)) = 1 + x + 3*x^2 + 14*x^3 + 92*x^4 + 774*x^5 +...
A(x)*(2-x) = 2 + x + 3*x^2 + 14*x^3 + 92*x^4 + 774*x^5 +...
Contribution from Paul D. Hanna, Sep 04 2010: (Start)
Let G(x) = x*A(x), then
A(x) = 1 + G(x)/2 + G(G(x))/2^2 + G(G(G(x)))/2^3 + G(G(G(G(x))))/2^4 + G(G(G(G(G(x)))))/2^5 +...
