Roland,
Thank you for your insights, providing a place to start in analyzing the behavior of these series.
Following your lead, one should study the formal power series given by:
G(x,b,c) = exp( Sum_{n>=1} x^n/(n*D(n,b,c)) )
where
D(n,b,c) = (b+sqrt(b^2-c))^n + (b-sqrt(b^2-c))^n
for some fixed non-zero integers b and c.
These are unusual power series expansions, and the denominator the coefficients of x^n in G(x,b,c) are some factor of n!*Product_{n>=0} D(n,b,c).
These functions will require further study, and perhaps may be understood using your methods of analysis.
It would be interesting to explore the inverse functions of x*G(x,b,c) and G(x,b,c)-1 as well.
Thanks,
Paul

Your examples are perhaps specialisations of a formal power series having
nice continued fractions.
If this is true, there are (at least three) tools for proving
continued fractions expansions which work sometimes.
