a(n) is the number of paths from (0,0) to (4n,n), taking north and east steps while avoiding exactly 2 consecutive north steps. - Shanzhen Gao, Apr 15 2010

FORMULA

a(n) = C(4n+1, n); a(n) is asymptotic to c/sqrt(n)*(256/27)^n with c=0.614... - Benoit Cloitre, Jan 27 2003

G.f.: g^2/(4-3*g) where g = 1+x*g^4 is the g.f. of A002293. - Mark van Hoeij, Nov 11 2011

G.f.: hypergeom([1/2, 3/4, 5/4], [2/3, 4/3], (256/27)*x). - Robert Israel, Aug 07 2014

3*n*(3*n-1)*(3*n+1)*a(n) - 8*(4*n+1)*(2*n-1)*(4*n-1)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012

From Peter Bala, Nov 04 2015: (Start)

The o.g.f. equals f(x)*g(x), where f(x) is the o.g.f. for A005810 and g(x) is the o.g.f. for A002293.

More generally, f(x)*g(x)^k is the o.g.f. for the sequence binomial(4*n + k,n). Cf. A262977 (k = -1), A005810 (k = 0), A257633 (k = 2), A224274 (k = 3) and A004331 (k = 4). (End)

a(n) = [x^n] 1/(1 - x)^(3*n+2). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Oct 03 2017
