 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Hankel transform is A131713. Binomial transform is A166588. [a(n+1)] = [1,-1,2,-4,9,...] is the inverse binomial transform of A126120. - Philippe Deléham, Nov 29 2009 LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..500 FORMULA G.f.: (1+3x-sqrt(1+2x-3x^2))/(2x); (1+3x)/(1+2x-x^2/(1+x-x^2/(1+x-x^2/(1+x-x^2/(1+...))))) (continued fraction). a(n) = 0^n + Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n-1, k-1)*(-3)^(n-k)*A000108(k). G.f.: (1+3*x-sqrt(1+2*x-3*x^2))/(2x) = (3-1/G(0))/2 ; G(k) = 1+2*x/(1-x/(1-x/(1+2*x/(1+x/(2+x/G(k+1)))))) ; (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Dec 11 2011 Conjecture: n*(n+1)*a(n) + n*(n+1)*a(n-1) - (5*n-3)*(n-2)*a(n-2) + 3*(n-2)*(n-3)*a(n-3) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 15 2012 G.f. G(x) satisfies (3 x^2 - 2 x^2 - x) G'(x) - (x+1) G(x) + 3 x + 1 = 0, from which follows 3*n*a(n) + (-3-2*n)*a(1+n) + (-3-n)*a(n+2) = 0 as well as Mathar's conjecture. - Robert Israel, May 17 2016 E.g.f.: 1 + Integral (exp(-x) * BesselI(1,2*x) / x) dx. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jun 01 2020 EXAMPLE G.f. = 1 + x - x^2 + 2*x^3 - 4*x^4 + 9*x^5 - 21*x^6 + 51*x^7 - 127*x^8 + ...
