FORMULA

a(n) is the numerator of (-1)^(n-1)*Cn-1{1^2..(2n-1)^2}/((2n)!*2^(2n-3)), where Cn{1^2..(2n+1)^2} equals 1 when n=0, otherwise, it is the sum of the products of all possible combinations, of size n, of the numbers (2k+1)^2 with k=0,1,..,n. - Ruperto Corso, Dec 15 2011

a(n) = numerator(A001824(n-1)*(-1)^(n-1)/(2^(2*n-3)*(2*n)!)). - Sean A. Irvine, Mar 29 2014

MAPLE

with(combinat): a:=n->add(mul(k, k=j), j=choose([seq((2*i-1)^2, i=1..n)], n-1))*(-1)^(n-1)/(2^(2*n-3)*(2*n)!): seq(numer(a(n)), n=1..20); # Ruperto Corso, Dec 15 2011
