Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

A026031 a(n) = number of (s(0), s(1), ..., s(2n)) such that s(i) is a nonnegative integer and |s(i) - s(i-1)| = 1 for i = 1,2,...,n, s(0) = 3, s(2n) = 7. Also a(n) = T(2n,n-2), where T is defined in A026022. 0

Table of n, a(n) for n=2..25.

FORMULA

C(2n, n-2) - C(2n, n-6). G.f.: (1+x^2C^4)*C^6, where C=(1-sqrt(1-4x))/(2x). - Ralf Stephan, Jan 09 2005

Conjecture: (n+6)*a(n) +10*(-n-4)*a(n-1) +2*(17*n+32)*a(n-2) +4*(-11*n+4)*a(n-3) +8*(2*n-5)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Jun 22 2013
