FORMULA

z A^2, where A is the g. f. of A027307

a(n)=2*sum(i=0,n-1, (2*n+i-1)!/(i!*(n-i-1)!*(n+i+1)!)). [From Vladimir Kruchinin, Oct 18 2011]

Recurrence: n*(2*n-1)*a(n) = (28*n^2-65*n+36)*a(n-1) - (64*n^2-323*n+408)*a(n-2) - 3*(n-4)*(2*n-5)*a(n-3). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 08 2012

a(n) ~ sqrt(45*sqrt(5)-100)*((11+5*sqrt(5))/2)^n/(5*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 08 2012
