EXAMPLE

Use the Lang and the Abramowitz and Stegun links in A111785. In the A-S list of partitions of the integer n on page 831 null all partitions containing 1, 2, or 3. These correspond to the null coefficients of x^2, x^3, and x^4 in the series to be reverted and to 3-, 4-, and 5-gons not being allowed in the dissections. a(9)=6 corresponds to the A-S partitions (n=8,m=1, partition 1)=8 and (8,2,4)=4^2, and these in turn correspond to one undissected 10-gon + five ways to divide a 10-gon into two 6-gons. a(10)=12 corresponds to (9,1,1)=9 and (9,2,4)=4,5, corresponding to one undissected 11-gon + the eleven ways to divide an 11-gon into a 6-gon and 7-gon. - Tom Copeland, Feb 15 2014
