FORMULA

G.f. A(x) satisfies: A_{n}(x) = A_{n+1}(x) - A_{n+2}(x)^2 - A_{n+3}(x)^2 where A_{n+1}(x) = A_{n}(A(x)) denotes iteration with A_0(x)=x.

G.f. satisfies: A(x) = A(A(x)) - A(A(A(x)))^2 - A(A(A(A(x))))^2.

G.f. satisfies: x = A( x - A(x)^2 - A(A(x))^2 ).

...

Given g.f. A(x), A(x)/x is the unique solution to variable A in the infinite system of simultaneous equations starting with:

. A = 1 + xB^2 + xC^2;

. B = A + xC^2 + xD^2;

. C = B + xD^2 + xE^2;

. D = C + xE^2 + xF^2; ...

. also B = A(A(x))/x, C = A(A(A(x)))/x, D = A(A(A(A(x))))/x, etc.

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = x + 2*x^2 + 20*x^3 + 316*x^4 + 6312*x^5 + 146256*x^6 +...

Related expansions:

A(A(x)) = x + 4*x^2 + 48*x^3 + 840*x^4 + 18016*x^5 + 440992*x^6 +...

A(A(A(x))) = x + 6*x^2 + 84*x^3 + 1620*x^4 + 37352*x^5 +969328*x^6 +...

A_{-1}(x) = x - 2*x^2 - 12*x^3 - 156*x^4 - 2776*x^5 - 59344*x^6 -...

A_{-2}(x) = x - 4*x^2 - 16*x^3 - 200*x^4 - 3488*x^5 - 73632*x^6 -...
