%N a(n) = (n+2)*2^(2*n-1) - (n/2)*binomial(2*n,n).

%C a(n) gives the number of open partitions of a tree made of two chains with n points each, that share an added root. (An open partition pi of a tree T is a partition of the vertices of T with the property that, for each block B of pi, the upset of B is a union of blocks of pi.) - _Pietro Codara_, Jan 14 2015

%F Main diagonal of correlation matrix of A055248. a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} ( Sum_{m=k..n} binomial(n, m))^2 ). - _Paul Barry_, Jun 05 2003

%F Let S2 := (n, t)->add( k^t * (add( binomial(n, j), j=0..k))^2, k=0..n); a(n) = S2(n, 0).

%F From _Robert Israel_, Jan 13 2015: (Start)

%F G.f.: (1-2*x)/(1-4*x)^2 - x/(1 - 4*x)^(3/2).

%F E.g.f.: (2*x+1)*exp(4*x) - x*exp(2*x)*(I_0(2*x)+I_1(2*x)) where I_0 and I_1 are modified Bessel functions.

%F a(n) ~ 4^n*(n/2 - sqrt(n)/(2*sqrt(Pi)) + 1 + O(n^(-1/2))).
