 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS First differences of central binomial coefficients: a(n)= A001405(n+1) - A001405(n). The maximum size of an intersecting (or proper) antichain on an n-set. - Vladeta Jovovic, Dec 27 2000 Number of ordered trees with n+1 edges, having root of degree at least 2 and nonroot nodes of outdegree 0 or 2. - Emeric Deutsch, Aug 02 2002 a(n)=number of Dyck (n+1)-paths that are symmetric but not prime. A prime Dyck path is one that returns to the x-axis only at its terminal point. For example a(3)=3 counts UDUUDDUD, UUDDUUDD, UDUDUDUD. - David Callan, Dec 09 2004 Number of involutions of [n+2] containing the pattern 132 exactly once. For example, a(3)=3 because we have 1'3'2'45, 42'5'13' and 52'4'3'1 (the entries corresponding to the pattern 132 are "primed"). - Emeric Deutsch, Nov 17 2005 Also number of ways to put n eggs in floor(n/2) baskets where order of the baskets matters and all baskets have at least 1 egg. - Ben Paul Thurston, Sep 30 2006 [1,1,3,4,10,15,35,56,...] is the convolution of A001405 with A126120. - Philippe Deléham, Mar 17 2007 For n >= 1 the number of standard Young tableaux with shapes corresponding to partitions into at most 2 distinct parts. - Joerg Arndt, Oct 25 2012 It seems that 3, 4, 10, ... are Colbourn's Covering Array Numbers CAN(2,k,2). - Ryan Dougherty, May 27 2015 For n > 0: a(n) = A265848(n,0). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 24 2015 Essentially the same as A007007. - Georg Fischer, Oct 02 2018 a(n) is the number of subsets of {1,2,...,n} that contain exactly 1 more odd than even elements.  For example, for n = 6, a(6) = 15 and the 15 sets are {1}, {3}, {5}, {1,2,3}, {1,2,5}, {1,3,4}, {1,3,6}, {1,4,5}, {1,5,6}, {2,3,5}, {3,4,5}, {3,5,6}, {1,2,3,4,5}, {1,2,3,5,6}, {1,3,4,5,6}. - Enrique Navarrete, Dec 21 2019 LINKS Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Cyril Banderier, Michael Wallner, Lattice paths with catastrophes, arXiv:1707.01931 [math.CO], 2017.

D-finite with recurrence: (n+2)*a(n) + (-n-2)*a(n-1) + 2*(-2*n+1)*a(n-2) + 4*(n-2)*a(n-3) = 0. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 25 2013. Proved by Robert Israel, Nov 13 2014 a(n) = binomial(n, (n-2)/2), n even; a(n) = binomial(n, (n+1)/2), n odd. - Enrique Navarrete, Dec 21 2019 MAPLE a:= n-> binomial(n, floor((n-1)/2)): seq(a(n), n=0..35);  # Alois P.
