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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The function B(x,r) = x*Sum_{n>=0} b(n,r)*x^n, where

b(n,r) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(n+k, k)*binomial(n+k+1, r*k+1)/(n+1), satisfies

B(x/(1+x) - x^r, r) = x for all positive integer r except at r=1;

B(x,1)/x is the generating function of this sequence.

FORMULA

Recurrence: 2*(n+1)^2*(2*n + 1)*(3*n - 2)*(7*n - 2)*a(n) = (1365*n^5 - 607*n^4 - 821*n^3 + 411*n^2 + 80*n - 44)*a(n-1) - 4*(n-2)*(2*n - 1)^2*(3*n + 1)*(7*n + 5)*a(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 27 2017

a(n) ~ 2^(4*n+3) / (3*Pi*n^2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 27 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + 4*x + 27*x^2 + 236*x^3 + 2375*x^4 + 26090*x^5 +...

Let G(x*A(x)) = x, then the series reversion of x*A(x) begins:

G(x) = x - 4*x^2 + 5*x^3 - 16*x^4 - 12*x^5 - 218*x^6 - 1197*x^7 - 8974*x^8 - 65582*x^9 - 503614*x^10 - 3956461*x^11 - ...

Does G(x) satisfy a nice functional equation?
