 Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2017 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS Apparently the number of sawtooth patterns in all Dyck paths of semilength n, ([0,1],2,7,25...). A sawtooth pattern is of the form (UD)^k, k>=1. More generally, the number of sawtooth patterns of length > t in all Dyck paths with semilength (n+t), t>=0. - David Scambler, Apr 23 2013 LINKS FORMULA a(n) = A051924(n)/2. - Zerinvary Lajos, Jan 16 2007 n*a(n) +(-5*n+4)*a(n-1) +2*(2*n-5)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 09 2018 n*(3*n-5)*a(n) -2*(3*n-2)*(2*n-3)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 09 2018 EXAMPLE The path udUududD has two sawtooth patterns, shown in lower case. MAPLE Z:=(1-z-sqrt(1-4*z))/sqrt(1-4*z)/2: Zser:=series(Z, z=0, 32): seq(coeff(Zser, z, n), n=2..25); - Zerinvary Lajos, Jan 16 2007 MATHEMATICA Table[(Binomial[2n, n]-Binomial[2n-2, n-1])/2, {n, 2, 30}] (* Harvey P.
