COMMENTS

Hankel transform is 5^n. In general, for r>=0, the sequence given by sum{k=0..n, C(n,floor(k/2))*(-r)^(n-k)} has Hankel transform (r+1)^n. The sequence is the image of the sequence with g.f. (1+x)/(1+4x) under the Chebyshev mapping g(x)->(1/sqrt(1-4x^2))g(xc(x^2)), where c(x) is the g.f. of the Catalan numbers A000108.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1/sqrt(1-4x^2))(1+x*c(x^2))/(1+4*x*c(x^2)).

Conjecture: 4*n*a(n) +(17*n-8)*a(n-1) +2*(-8*n-1)*a(n-2) +68*(-n+2)*a(n-3)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 24 2012
