%C Number of lattice paths from (0,0) to the line x=n consisting of U=(1,1), D=(1,-1) and H=(2,0) steps and never going below the x-axis (i.e. left factors of Schroeder paths); for example, a(3)=5, counting the paths UUU,UUD,UDU,HU and UH. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Oct 27 2002

%C Transform of A001405 by |A049310(n,k)|, that is, transform of central binomial coefficients C(n,floor(n/2)) by Chebyshev mapping which takes a sequence with g.f. g(x) to the sequence with g.f. (1/(1-x^2))g(x/(1-x^2)). - _Paul Barry_, Jul 30 2005

%C The Kn1p sums, p >= 1, see A180662, of the Schroeder triangle A033877 (offset 0) are all related to A026003, e.g. Kn11(n) = A026003(n), Kn12(n) = A026003(n+2) - 1, Kn13(n) = A026003(n+4) - (2*n+7), Kn14(n) = A026003(n+6) - (2*n^2+18*n+41), Kn15(n) = A026003(n+8) - (4*n^3+66*n^2+368*n+693)/3, etc.. - _Johannes W.
