FORMULA

Numbers suggest that for n not divisible by 4, a(n) = C(n, [n/2]) + 1 and C(n, [(n-1)/2]) + 1 otherwise (see A051920 and A037952+1). - Ralf Stephan, Jun 07 2005

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Binomial[n-1, 2*Floor[(n-1)/4] + 1] + 1; Table[a[n], {n, 1, 29}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jan 23 2012, after Ralf Stephan *)

CROSSREFS

Very like A051920.
