Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Suppose s = (c(0), c(1), c(2), ...) is a sequence and p(S) is a polynomial. Let S(x) = c(0)*x + c(1)*x^2 + c(2)*x^3 + ... and T(x) = (-p(0) + 1/p(S(x)))/x. The p-INVERT of s is the sequence t(s) of coefficients in the Maclaurin series for T(x). Taking p(S) = 1 - S gives the "INVERT" transform of s, so that p-INVERT is a generalization of the "INVERT" transform (e.g., A033453).

See A289780 for a guide to related sequences.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 - x + 2 x^3 - x^4)/(1 - 5 x + 5 x^2 + 4 x^3 - 12 x^4 + 5 x^5 + 4 x^6 - 4 x^7 + x^8).

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2) - 4*a(n-3) + 12*a(n-4) - 5*a(n-5) - 4*a(n-6) + 4*a(n-7) - a(n-8).
