FORMULA
a(n) = (binomial(2^n + n-1, n) - (-1)^n*binomial(2^n, n) )/2. [Paul D. Hanna, Nov 24 2009]
EXAMPLE
G.f.: S(x) = 2*x + 2*x^2 + 88*x^3 + 1028*x^4 + 289184*x^5 + 22451552*x^6 + ...
The g.f. of A166995 is C(x):
C(x) = Sum_{n>=0} log(1 - 2^(2n)*x)^(2n)/(2n)!.
C(x) = 1 + 8*x^2 + 32*x^3 + 2848*x^4 + 87808*x^5 + 97425920*x^6 + ...
where C(x) + S(x) = Sum_{n>=0} C(2^n + n - 1, n)*x^n ... (cf. A060690)
and C(x) - S(x) = Sum_{n>=0} C(2^n, n)*(-x)^n ... (cf. A014070).
Related expansions:
C(x) + S(x) = 1 + 2*x + 10*x^2 + 120*x^3 + 3876*x^4 + 376992*x^5 + ...
C(x) - S(x) = 1 - 2*x + 6*x^2 - 56*x^3 + 1820*x^4 - 201376*x^5 + ...
