The Bateman polynomials $F_n$ are defined for $n=0,1,2,\ldots$ by the formula $$F_n(z) = {}_3F_2 \left( -n, n+1, \dfrac{z+1}{2}; 1,1;1 \right),$$ where ${}_3F_2$ denotes the generalized hypergeometric function. The first few Bateman polynomials are $$\begin{array}{l|l} n & F_n(z) \\ \hline 0 & 1 \\ 1 & -z \\ 2 & \dfrac{3}{4}z^2+\dfrac{1}{4} \\ 3 & -\dfrac{5}{12}z^3-\dfrac{7}{12}z^2 \\ 4 & \dfrac{35}{192}z^4 + \dfrac{65}{96}z^2+\dfrac{9}{64} \\ 5 & -\dfrac{21}{320}z^5 - \dfrac{49}{96}z^3 - \dfrac{407}{960}z \\ \vdots & \vdots \end{array}$$
