COMMENTS

Number of standard tableaux of shape (n,n,1,1,1,1) (see Stanley reference). - Emeric Deutsch, May 20 2004

Number of increasing tableaux of shape (n+4,n+4) with largest entry 2n+4. An increasing tableau is a semistandard tableau with strictly increasing rows and columns, such that the set of entries forms an initial segment of the positive integers. - Oliver Pechenik, May 02 2014

a(n) = number of noncrossing partitions of 2n+4 into n blocks all of size at least 2.  - Oliver Pechenik, May 02 2014
