Hello,

from my table of conjectures (automated generated formulas), at
http://www.plouffe.fr/simon/OEIS/conjectures/OEIS_conjectured_formulas.txt

I get these entries :

A106804 14.8323 -(-2*x+9*x^2+4*x^3)/(1-10*x-x^4+25*x^2) ogf
A106804 15.2226 (-2+9*x+4*x^2)/(x^2-5*x+1)/(x^2+5*x-1) ogf
A106804 6.78608 -10*x+45*x^2+20*x^3+(5-28*x-5*x^4+26*x^2-44*x^3)*f(x)+(-275*x^2-11+110*x+11*x^4)*f(x)^2 ogf
A106804 7.66739 -(-11+108*x-265*x^2-8*x^3+27*x^4+8*x^5)/(4*x^2+9*x-2)/(x^2+5*x-1)/(x^2-5*x+1) lgdogf

one is the factor of the other, and with a score of 15.2226 which is pretty high.

Best Regards,
Simon Plouffe
