FORMULA

G.f.: A(x) = (1/x)*Series_Reversion( 2*x^3/(1 - sqrt(1-4*x^2-4*x^3)) ).

G.f. satisfies: A(x) = (1 + x*A(x)) * (1 + x*A(x)^3) / (1 + x*A(x)^2).

Recurrence: 3*(n-2)*n*(2*n-5)*(3*n-2)*(3*n+2)*a(n) = 3*(2*n-5)*(2*n-1)*(18*n^3 - 54*n^2 + 36*n - 5)*a(n-1) + (2*n-3)*(94*n^4 - 564*n^3 + 1222*n^2 - 1128*n + 331)*a(n-2) + 3*(2*n - 5)*(2*n - 1)*(18*n^3 - 108*n^2 + 198*n - 103)*a(n-3) - 3*(n-3)*(n-1)*(2*n-1)*(3*n-11)*(3*n-7)*a(n-4). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 10 2013

a(n) ~ c*d^n/n^(3/2), where d = (9 + 8*sqrt(3) + 4*sqrt(12 + 9*sqrt(3)))/9 = 4.874032512954972962... is the root of the equation 27 - 108*d - 94*d^2 - 108*d^3 + 27*d^4 = 0 and c = sqrt(11/(8*(-44 + sqrt(748 + 891*sqrt(3)))*Pi)) = 0.336422381089368230542882135982348331566666028... - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 10 2013, updated Apr 27 2015

a(n) = sum(k=0..n, binomial(3n-2k+1, k)*binomial(k,n-k)*1/(3n-2k+1)). - Michael D. Weiner, Apr 23 2015

G.f.: A(x) = hypergeom([1/4, 1/2, 3/4], [2/3, 4/3], (256/27)*x^2/(x-1)^4)/(1-x). - Robert Israel, Apr 28 2015
