%F G.f.: Sum_{n>=0} (2*n)!/(n!)^2 * x^(5*n) / (1 - x + x^5)^(2*n+1). - _Paul D. Hanna_, Oct 15 2014

%F G.f.: Sum_{n>=0} x^n * [Sum_{k>=0} C(n+k,k)^2 * x^(4*k)] * (1-x^4)^(2*n+1).

%F G.f.: Sum_{n>=0} x^(5*n) * [Sum_{k>=0} C(n+k,k)^2 * x^k].

%F G.f.: Sum_{n>=0} x^(5*n) * [Sum_{k=0..n} C(n,k)^2 * x^k] /(1-x)^(2n+1).

%F G.f.: exp( Sum_{n>=1} (x^n/n) * Sum_{k=0..n} C(2*n,2*k) * x^(4*k) ).

%F G.f.: exp( Sum_{n>=1} (x^n/n) * ((1+x^2)^(2*n) + (1-x^2)^(2*n))/2 ).

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=0..[n/4]} C(n-4*k, k)^2.

%e G.f.: A(x) = 1 + x + x^2 + x^3 + x^4 + 2*x^5 + 5*x^6 + 10*x^7 + 17*x^8 +...

%e where, by definition,

%e A(x) = 1 + x*(1 + x^4) + x^2*(1 + 2^2*x^4 + x^8)

%e + x^3*(1 + 3^2*x^4 + 3^2*x^8 + x^12)

%e + x^4*(1 + 4^2*x^4 + 6^2*x^8 + 4^2*x^12 + x^16)

%e + x^5*(1 + 5^2*x^4 + 10^2*x^8 + 10^2*x^12 + 5^2*x^16 + x^20) +...

%e which is also given by the series identity:

%e A(x) = 1/(1-x+x^5) + 2*x^5/(1-x+x^5)^3 + 6*x^10/(1-x+x^5)^5 + 20*x^15/(1-x+x^5)^7 + 70*x^20/(1-x+x^5)^9 + 252*x^25/(1-x+x^5)^11 + 924*x^30/(1-x+x^5)^13 +...

%e The logarithm of the g.f. begins:

%e log(A(x)) = x*(1 + x^4) + x^2*(1 + 6*x^4 + x^8)/2

%e + x^3*(1 + 15*x^4 + 15*x^8 + x^12)/3

%e + x^4*(1 + 28*x^4 + 70*x^8 + 28*x^12 + x^16)/4

%e + x^5*(1 + 45*x^4 + 210*x^8 + 210*x^12 + 45*x^16 + x^20)/5 +...

%e more explicitly,

%e log(A(x)) = x + x^2/2 + x^3/3 + x^4/4 + 6*x^5/5 + 19*x^6/6 + 36*x^7/7 + 57*x^8/8 + 82*x^9/9 + 116*x^10/10 + 199*x^11/11 + 391*x^12/12 +...

%e where the logarithmic derivative equals

%e A'(x)/A(x) = (1-x+5*x^4+6*x^5-5*x^9)/((1+x+x^2)*(1-2*x+x^2-x^3)*(1-x+2*x^3-x^5)).
