Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

FORMULA

a(n) = 4^n*sum(A000531(k+1)/4^k, k=0..n) = (2*n+1)*(2*n+3)*(2*n+5)*C(n)/3-(n+2)*2^(2*n+1); a(n)=4*a(n-1)+A000531(n+1).

G.f. c(x)/(1-4*x)^(5/2) = (2-c(x))/(1-4*x)^3, where c(x) = g.f. for Catalan numbers; also convolution of Catalan numbers with A002802.

G.f.: (4*x-1+sqrt(1-4*x))/(2*x*(1-4*x)^3). -  Vincenzo Librandi, Mar 14 2014
