EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = x + x^2 - 4*x^3 + 39*x^4 - 580*x^5 + 11480*x^6 +...

Coefficients in the initial iterations of A(x) begin:

[1, 1,(-2),. 12,. -120,. 1684,. -31120,.. 730167,. -21231238,...];

[1, 2,(-2), (15), -166,. 2482,. -48156,. 1173206,. -35125518,...];

[1, 3,. 0,. (15),(-180), 2832,. -57240,. 1438754,. -44147898,...];

[1, 4,. 4,.. 18, (-180),(2950), -61708,. 1591568,. -49868346,...];

[1, 5, 10,.. 30,. -160, (2950),(-63432), 1671151,. -53317312,...];

[1, 6, 18,.. 57,.. -90,. 2964, (-63432),(1702414), -55189776,...];

[1, 7, 28,. 105,... 84,. 3262,. -61768, (1702414),(-55964444),...];

[1, 8, 40,. 180,.. 440,. 4372,. -56712,. 1688208, (-55964444),...]; ...

where the above coefficients in parenthesis illustrate the property

that the coefficients of x^n in A_{n-1}(x) and in A_{n-2}(x) are equal.
