FORMULA
a(n) = n * Sum_{k=0..[n/2]} binomial((n-k)^2, k^2)/(n-k).
Limit n->infinity a(n)^(1/n^2) = (1-2*r)^r / r^(2*r) = 1.2915356633069917227119166349..., where r = A323778 = 0.365498498219858044579... is the root of the equation (1-r)^(2-2*r) * r^(2*r) = 1-2*r. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 03 2014
EXAMPLE
L.g.f.: L(x) = x + 3*x^2/2 + 7*x^3/3 + 15*x^4/4 + 231*x^5/5 + 2763*x^6/6 +...
where exponentiation yields the g.f. of A206850:
exp(L(x)) = 1 + x + 2*x^2 + 4*x^3 + 8*x^4 + 56*x^5 + 522*x^6 + 5972*x^7 +...
By definition, the l.g.f. equals the series:
L(x) = (C(1,0) + C(1,1)*x)*x
+ (C(4,0) + C(4,1)*x + C(4,4)*x^2)*x^2/2
+ (C(9,0) + C(9,1)*x + C(9,4)*x^2 + C(9,9)*x^3)*x^3/3
+ (C(16,0) + C(16,1)*x + C(16,4)*x^2 + C(16,9)*x^3 + C(16,16)*x^4)*x^4/4
+ (C(25,0) + C(25,1)*x + C(25,4)*x^2 + C(25,9)*x^3 + C(25,16)*x^4 + C(25,25)*x^5)*x^5/5 +...
More explicitly,
L(x) = (1 + 1*x)*x + (1 + 4*x + 1*x^2)*x^2/2
+ (1 + 9*x + 126*x^2 + 1*x^3)*x^3/3
+ (1 + 16*x + 1820*x^2 + 11440*x^3 + 1*x^4)*x^4/4
+ (1 + 25*x + 12650*x^2 + 2042975*x^3 + 2042975*x^4 + 1*x^5)*x^5/5
+ (1 + 36*x + 58905*x^2 + 94143280*x^3 + 7307872110*x^4 + 600805296*x^5 + 1*x^6)*x^6/6 +...
