COMMENTS

Hankel transform is A127276.

The second self-composition of the g.f. G(x) of A120009 is G(G(x)) = (sqrt(1-4x)-x)/(1-4x) - 1.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..25.

FORMULA

a(n) = C(2n,n) - 4^(n-1) + 0^n/4. - Paul Barry, Jan 10 2007

Conjecture: n*a(n) + 2*(-4*n+3)*a(n-1) + 8*(2*n-3)*a(n-2) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

EXAMPLE

A(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 4*x^3 + 6*x^4 - 4*x^5 - 100*x^6 - 664*x^7 +...

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=local(k=2, x=X+X^3*O(X^n)); polcoeff( x*((1-k+k^2)-k^2*(k+1)*x-k*(1-(k+2)*x)*(1-sqrt(1-4*x))/2/x)/(1-k+k^2*x)^2, n, X)}
