Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

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 A292480 for a guide to related sequences.

FORMULA

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

a(n) = 6*a(n-1) - 25*a(n-2) + 21*a(n-3) - 12*a(n-4) + 9*a(n-5) for n >= 6.
