FORMULA

Apart from initial term, g.f. is the series reversion of (x-x^2)/(1+x)^3 (A162395). See A263843. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Feb 08 2013

G.f.: (g-z)/z, where g=-1/3+(2/3)*sqrt(1+9z)*sin((1/3)*arcsin((2+27z+54z^2)/2/(1+9*z)^(3/2))). - Emeric Deutsch, Dec 02 2002

a(n) = (1/n)*Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(3n, n-k-1)*binomial(n+k-1, k). - Paul Barry, May 11 2005

a(n) = 4^(n-1)*(Gamma(3*n/2-1)/Gamma(n/2+1)/Gamma(n) -Gamma((3*n-1)/2)/ Gamma( (n+1)/2)/Gamma(n+1)). - Mark van Hoeij, Aug 27 2005, adapted to offset Feb 21 2020 by R. J. Mathar

a(n) = 4^n * binomial(3*n/2, n/2) / (9*n-6) - 4^(n-1) * binomial(3*(n-1)/2, (n-1)/2 ) / n. - Mark van Hoeij, Aug 27 2005, adapted to offset Feb 21 2020 by R. J. Mathar

D-finite with recurrence: n*(n-1)*(3*n-4)*a(n) +36*(n-1)*a(n-1) -12*(3*n-8)*(3*n-1)*(3*n-7)*a(n-2)=0. - Mark van Hoeij, Aug 27 2005, adapted to offset Feb 21 2020 by R. J. Mathar

a(n) = (1/n)*Sum_{k=0..n} C(3n, k)*C(2n-k-2, n-1). - Paul Barry, Sep 27 2005

a(n) ~ (2-sqrt(3)) * 6^n * 3^(n/2) / (sqrt(2*Pi) * n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 17 2014

a(n) = binomial(3*n,2*n+1)*hypergeom([1-n,n], [2*n+2], -1)/n. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Oct 25 2015

a(n) = 2*A078531(n) - A085614(n+1). - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Apr 24 2016

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x*(1 + x + 4*x^2 + 23*x^3 + 156*x^4 + 1162*x^5 + 9192*x^6 + 75819*x^7 + ...).

MAPLE

A007297:=proc(n) if n = 1 then 1 else add(binomial(3*n - 3, n + j)*binomial(j - 1, j - n + 1), j = n - 1 .. 2*n - 3)/(n - 1); fi; end;
