Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

It appears that a(n) is also the number of quivers in the mutation class of affine B_n or affine type C_n for n>=2. [Christian Stump, Nov 02 2010]

FORMULA

n odd: C(2n-1, n-1); n even: C(2n-1, n-1) + C(n-1, n/2-1)

E.g.f.: exp(x)*cosh(x)*BesselI(0, 2*x). - Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 07 2005

G.f.: (1/2)*((1-4*x)^(-1/2)+(1-4*x^2)^(-1/2))   - Mark van Hoeij, Oct 30 2011.
