COMMENTS
Hankel transform is 8^C(n+1,2). - Philippe Deléham, Feb 04 2009
a(n-1) is also the number of ways a list of n items can be grouped into nested sublists (e.g., [a b c] to [a b c], [[a] b c], [[a, b] c], [[a [b]] c], and so on). - Ryan Tosh, Nov 10 2021

FORMULA
G.f.: (1-2x-sqrt(1-12x+4x^2))/(4x);
G.f.: 1/(1-2x-2x/(1-2x-2x/(1-2x-2x/(1-... (continued fraction);
a(n) = 2^n*Sum_{k=0..n} C(n+k,2k)*A000108(k) = 2^n*A006318(n).
Conjecture: (n+1)*a(n) +6*(1-2*n)*a(n-1) +4*(n-2)*a(n-2) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 14 2011
a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} A090181(n,k)*2^(n+k). - Philippe Deléham, Nov 27 2011
a(n) ~ sqrt(4+3*sqrt(2))*(6+4*sqrt(2))^n/(2*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 20 2012
G.f.: 1/Q(0) where Q(k) = 1 + k*(1-2*x) - 2*x - 2*x*(k+1)*(k+2)/Q(k+1); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 14 2013
a(n) = 2*A059435(n) for n >= 1. - Sergey Kirgizov, Feb 13 2017
a(n) = 2^n*hypergeom([-n, n + 1], [2], -1). - Peter Luschny, Nov 25 2020
