 OFFSET 0,1 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 A290890 for a guide to related sequences.
