 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS More generally, if F(x) = x + x*F(F(qx)), then F(x) = x + x*F(qx) + x*F(qx)*F(qF(qx) + x*F(qx)*F(qF(qx))*F(qF(qF(qx))) +... with a simple solution at q=1/2: F(x) = x/(1-x/2) satisfies F(x) = x + x*F(F(x/2)). At q=1, F(x,q=1) is the g.f. of A030266. QUESTIONS regarding convergence of F(x,q) as a power series in x. (1) What is Q, the maximum q below which a radius of convergence exists? Is Q=1?
