G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..200

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n-2} (2*k+1)*binomial(2*n-k-5,n-3), n>2; a(1)=1, a(2)=2. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Sep 27 2011

a(n) = (5*n-9)/(8*n-12)*binomial(2*n-2,n-1), n>2; a(1)=1, a(2)=2. - Eric Werley, Sep 16 2015

G.f.: (3/2)*x^2 + (2*x - 3*x^2)/(2*sqrt(1-4*x)). - G. C. Greubel, Sep 24 2015

EXAMPLE

1/1; <-- hence 1;

1/1 1/1;

1/1 1/2 1/1; <-- hence 2

1/1 3/2 3/2 1/1;

1/1 5/2 3/1 5/2 1/1; <-- hence 3

1/1 7/2 11/2 11/2 7/2 1/1;

1/1 9/2 9/1 11/1 9/1 9/2 1/1; <-- hence 11

1/1 11/2 27/2 20/1 20/1 27/2 11/2 1/1;
