COMMENTS

The definition of the e.g.f. A(x) is an application of the identity:

* Sum_{n>=0} log(1 + q^n*x)^n/n! = Sum_{n>=0} binomial(q^n, n)*x^n at q = A(x).

Consider the function G(x) such that G(x) = 1 + x*G(x)^p, then

* G(x) = Sum_{n>=0} log(1 + x*G(x)^p)^n/n! (trivially), and

* G(x) = Sum_{n>=0} binomial(p*n+1,n)*x^n/(p*n+1) for fixed p;

does an analogous expression exist for the e.g.f. of this sequence?

Note that terms a(70)-a(83) are negative. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 13 2014

FORMULA

E.g.f. also satisfies:

(1) A(x) = Sum_{n>=0} binomial(A(x)^n, n) * x^n.

(2) A(x) = Sum_{n>=0} x^n * Sum_{k=0..n} Stirling1(n,k) * A(x)^(n*k)/n!.

EXAMPLE

E.g.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + 2*x^2/2! + 12*x^3/3! + 120*x^4/4! + 1600*x^5/5! +...

where A(x) satisfies:

A(x) = 1 + log(1 + x*A(x)) + log(1 + x*A(x)^2)^2/2! + log(1 + x*A(x)^3)^3/3! +...

The e.g.f. also satisfies:

A(x) = 1 + A(x)*x + A(x)^2*(A(x)^2-1)*x^2/2! + A(x)^3*(A(x)^3-1)*(A(x)^3-2)*x^3/3! + A(x)^4*(A(x)^4-1)*(A(x)^4-2)*(A(x)^4-3)*x^4/4! +...+ binomial(A(x)^n, n)*x^n +...
