COMMENTS

The number of perfect matchings in a triangular grid of n squares (n = 1, 4, 9, 16, 25, ...).  Roberto E. Martinez II, Nov 05 2001
a(n) is the number of subdiagonal paths from (0, 0) to (n, n) consisting of steps East (1, 0), North (0, 1) and Northeast (1, 1) (sometimes called royal paths).  David Callan, Mar 14 2004
Twice A001003 (except for the first term).
a(n) is the number of dissections of a regular (n+4)gon by diagonals that do not touch the base. (A diagonal is a straight line joining two nonconsecutive vertices and dissection means the diagonals are noncrossing though they may share an endpoint. One side of the (n+4)gon is designated the base.) Example: a(1)=2 because a pentagon has only 2 such dissections: the empty one and the one with a diagonal parallel to the base.  David Callan, Aug 02 2004
From Jonathan Vos Post, Dec 23 2004: (Start)
The only prime in this sequence is 2. The semiprimes (intersection with A001358) are a(2) = 6, a(3) = 22, a(4) = 394, a(9) = 206098 and a(215), and correspond 1to1 with prime superCatalan numbers, also called prime little Schröder numbers (intersection of A001003 and A000040), which are listed as A092840 and indexed as A092839.
The 3almost prime large Schröder numbers a(7) = 8558, a(11) = 5293446, a(17) = 111818026018, a(19) = 3236724317174, a(21) = 95149655201962 (intersection of A006318 and A014612) correspond 1to1 with semiprime superCatalan numbers, also called semiprime little Schröder numbers (intersection of A001003 and A001358), which are listed as A101619 and indexed as A101618. These relationships all derive from the fact that a(n) = 2*A001003(n).
Eric W. Weisstein comments that the Schröder numbers bear the same relationship to the Delannoy numbers (A001850) as the Catalan numbers (A000108) do to the binomial coefficients. (End)
a(n) is the number of lattice paths from (0, 0) to (n+1, n+1) consisting of unit steps north N = (0, 1) and variablelength steps east E = (k, 0), with k a positive integer, that stay strictly below the line y = x except at the endpoints. For example, a(2) = 6 counts 111NNN, 21NNN, 3NNN, 12NNN, 11N1NN, 2N1NN (east steps indicated by their length). If the word "strictly" is replaced by "weakly", the counting sequence becomes the little Schröder numbers, A001003 (offset).  David Callan, Jun 07 2006
a(n) is the number of dissections of a regular (n+3)gon with base AB that do not contain a triangle of the form ABP with BP a diagonal. Example: a(1) = 2 because the square DC   AB has only 2 such dissections: the empty one and the one with the single diagonal AC (although this dissection contains the triangle ABC, BC is not a diagonal).  David Callan, Jul 14 2006
a(n) is the number of (colored) Motzkin npaths with each upstep and each flatstep at ground level getting one of 2 colors and each flatstep not at ground level getting one of 3 colors. Example: With their colors immediately following upsteps/flatsteps, a(2) = 6 counts U1D, U2D, F1F1, F1F2, F2F1, F2F2.  David Callan, Aug 16 2006
a(n) is the number of separable permutations, i.e., permutations avoiding 2413 and 3142 (see Shapiro and Stephens).  Vincent Vatter, Aug 16 2006
The Hankel transform of this sequence is A006125(n+1) = [1, 2, 8, 64, 1024, 32768, ...]; example: Det([1, 2, 6, 22; 2, 6, 22, 90; 6, 22, 90, 394; 22, 90, 394, 1806 ]) = 64.  Philippe Deléham, Sep 03 2006
Triangle A144156 has row sums equal to A006318 with left border A001003.  Gary W. Adamson, Sep 12 2008
a(n) is also the number of orderpreserving and orderdecreasing partial transformations (of an nchain). Equivalently, it is the order of the Schröder monoid, PC sub n.  Abdullahi Umar, Oct 02 2008
Sum_{n >= 0} a(n)/10^n  1 = [9sqrt(41)]/2.  Mark Dols (markdols99(AT)yahoo.com), Jun 22 2010
1/sqrt(41) = sum_{n >= 0} Delannoy number(n)/10^n.  Mark Dols (markdols99(AT)yahoo.com), Jun 22 2010
a(n) is also the dimension of the space Hoch(n) related to Hochschild two cocyles.  Ph. Leroux (ph_ler_math(AT)yahoo.com), Aug 24 2010
Let W = (w(n, k)) denote the augmentation triangle (as at A193091) of A154325; then w(n, n) = A006318(n).  Clark Kimberling, Jul 30 2011
Conjecture: For each n > 2, the polynomial sum_{k = 0}^n a(k)*x^{nk} is irreducible modulo some prime p < n*(n+1).  ZhiWei Sun, Apr 07 2013
From Jon Perry, May 24 2013: (Start)
Consider a Pascal triangle variant where T(n, k) = T(n, k1) + T(n1, k1) + T(n1, k), i.e., the order of performing the calculation must go from left to right (A033877). This sequence is the rightmost diagonal.
Triangle begins:
1
1 2
1 4 6
1 6 16 22
1 8 30 68 90
(End)
a(n) is the number of permutations avoiding 2143, 3142 and one of the patterns among 246135, 254613, 263514, 524361, 546132.  Alexander Burstein, Oct 05 2014
a(n) is the number of semistandard Young tableaux of shape n x 2 with consecutive entries. That is, j \in P and 1<=i<=j imply i \in P.  Graham H. Hawkes, Feb 15 2015

From Tom Copeland, Sep 21 2011: (Start)
With F(x) = (13*xsqrt(16*x+x^2))/(2*x) an o.g.f. (nulling the n = 0 term) for A006318, G(x) = x/(2+3*x+x^2) is the compositional inverse.
Consequently, with H(x) = 1/ (dG(x)/dx) = (2+3*x+x^2)^2 / (2x^2),
a(n)=(1/n!)*[(H(x)*d/dx)^n] x evaluated at x = 0, i.e.,
F(x) = exp[x*H(u)*d/du] u, evaluated at u = 0. Also, dF(x)/dx = H(F(x)). (End)
a(n1) = number of ordered complete binary trees with n leaves having k internal vertices colored black, the remaining n  1  k internal vertices colored white, and such that each vertex and its rightmost child have different colors ([Drake, Example 1.6.7]). For a refinement of this sequence see A175124.  Peter Bala, Sep 29 2011
Recurrence: (n2)*a(n2)  3*(2*n1)*a(n1) + (n+1)*a(n) = 0.  Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 05 2012

G.f.: A(x) = (1  x  sqrt(16x+x^2))/(2*x)= (G(0)1)/x; G(k)= 1  x/(1  2/G(k+1)); (continued fraction, 2step).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Jan 04 2012

G.f.: 1/Q(0) where Q(k) = 1 + k*(1x)  x  x*(k+1)*(k+2)/Q(k+1); (continued fraction).  Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Mar 14 2013

a(n) = 1/(n+1) (Sum_{j=0..n} C(n+j,j)*C(n+j+1,j+1)*(Sum_{k=0..nj} (1)^k*C(n+j+k,k))).  Graham H. Hawkes, Feb 15 2015
a(n) = hypergeom([n, n+1], [2], 1).  Peter Luschny, Mar 23 2015
a(n) = sqrt(2) * LegendreP(n,1,3) where LegendreP is the associated Legendre function of the first kind (in Maple's notation).  Robert Israel, Mar 23 2015


EXAMPLE

a(3) = 22 since the top row of Q^n = (6, 6, 6, 4, 0, 0, 0,...); where 22 = (6 + 6 + 6 + 4).
