(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A176749 Sequence defined by the recurrence formula a(n+1)=sum(a(p)*a(n-p)+k,p=0..n)+l for n>=1, with here a(0)=1, a(1)=3, k=0 and l=-1. 1

FORMULA

G.f f: f(z)=(1-sqrt(1-4*z*(a(0)-z*a(0)^2+z*a(1)+(k+l)*z^2/(1-z)+k*z^2/(1-z)^2)))/(2*z) (k=0, l=-1).

Conjecture: (n+1)*a(n) +2*(-3*n+1)*a(n-1) +(n+3)*a(n-2) +4*(4*n-13)*a(n-3) +12*(-n+4)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 18 2016

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2*1*3-1=5. a(3)=2*1*5+3^2-1=18. a(4)=2*1*18+2*3*5-1=65.

MAPLE

l:=-1: : k := 0 : m:=3:d(0):=1:d(1):=m: for n from 1 to 30 do d(n+1):=sum(d(p)*d(n-p)+k, p=0..n)+l:od :

taylor((1-sqrt(1-4*z*(d(0)-z*d(0)^2+z*m+(k+l)*z^2/(1-z)+k*z^2/(1-z)^2)))/(2*z), z=0, 30); seq(d(n), n=0..30);
