Hankel transform of A160702(n+1).
In general, we can conjecture that the Hankel transform a(n) of f(n+1), where f(n)=if(n=0,1,if(n=1,1,if(n=2,1,r*f(n-1)+s*sum{k=0..n-2, f(k)*f(n-1-k)}))) satisfies the generalized Somos-4 recurrence: a(n)=(s^2*a(n-1)*a(n-3)+s^3*(2*s+r-2)*a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4). The case r=s=1 is proved in the Xin reference.

FORMULA
a(n) = (4*a(n-1)*a(n-3)+24*a(n-2)^2)/a(n-4), a(0)=1, a(1)=4, a(2)=20, a(3)=464.
a(-n) = a(n-3) * 2^(2*n - 3). a(-1) = a(0) = 1. - Michael Somos, Jun 15 2011
