Limit n->infinity A220353(n)/A187826(n) = 1. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 08 2014

LINKS

Vaclav Kotesovec, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..300

FORMULA

G.f.: Sum_{n>=1} (1-x)^n * (1 - (1-x)^n)^(n-1).

a(n) = c * n! / (sqrt(n) * (log(2))^(2*n)), where c = 0.93418651575946259471737... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 06 2014

In closed form, c = 2^(log(2)/2-1) / (log(2) * sqrt(Pi*(1-log(2)))). - Vaclav Kotesovec, May 03 2015

EXAMPLE

G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + 4*x^2 + 23*x^3 + 176*x^4 + 1697*x^5 + 19805*x^6 +...

where the g.f. satisfies the identities:

(1) A(x) = 1 + x + (2*x - x^2)^2 + (3*x - 3*x^2 + x^3)^3 + (4*x - 6*x^2 + 4*x^3 - x^4)^4 + (5*x - 10*x^2 + 10*x^3 - 5*x^4 + x^5)^5 +...

(2) A(x) = (1-x) + (1-x)^2*(2*x - x^2) + (1-x)^3*(3*x - 3*x^2 + x^3)^2 + (1-x)^4*(4*x - 6*x^2 + 4*x^3 - x^4)^3 + (1-x)^5*(5*x - 10*x^2 + 10*x^3 - 5*x^4 + x^5)^4 +...
