COMMENTS

a(n) = number of integer strings s(0),...,s(n) counted by array T in A026374 that have s(n)=0; also a(n)=T(2n,n).

Partial sums of A085362. Number of bilateral Schroeder paths (i.e. lattice paths consisting of steps U=(1,1), D=(1,-1) and H=(2,0)) from (0,0) to (2n,0) and with no H-steps at odd (positive or negative) levels. Example: a(2)=11 because we have HUD, UDH, UDUD, UUDD, UDDU, their reflections in the x-axis and HH. - Emeric Deutsch, Jan 30 2004

Largest coefficient of (1+3*x+x^2)^n; row sums of triangle in A124733 . - Philippe Deléham, Oct 02 2007

Also number of paths from (0,0) to (n,0) using steps U=(1,1), H=(1,0) and D=(1,-1), the H steps come in three colors. - N-E. Fahssi, Feb 05 2008

Equals INVERT transform of A109033: (1, 2, 6, 22, 88,...), INVERTi transform of A111966, binomial transform of A000984, and inverse Binomial transform of A081671. Convolved with A002212: (1, 3, 10, 36,...) = A026376: (1, 6, 30, 144,...). Equals convolution square root of A003463: (1, 6, 31, 156, 781, 3906,...). - Gary W. Adamson, May 17 2009
