G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1660

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 + sqrt(1 - 4*x)) / 2 - 2*x.

G.f.: -2*x + 1 - x / (1 - x / (1 - x / ...)) (continued fraction).

a(n) = A115140(n) = A115141(n) for all n in Z unless n=1.

a(n) = -A000108(n-1) for all n>1.

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 - 3*x - x^2 - 2*x^3 - 5*x^4 - 14*x^5 - 42*x^6 - 132*x^7 - 429*x^8 + ...
