This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.

 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. Other ways to donate

%N Number of walks of length n on square lattice, starting at origin, staying in first and third quadrants.

%C Is there a formula analogous to the (conjectured) formula for A060900?

%C Could be broken into the number of walks that are constrained to a quadrant and the number that cross the origin. (I.e., 2*A005566(n) + 2*A005566(n-2)*A005568(1) + 2*A005566(n-4)*A005568(2) + ... + All terms that cross the origin twice + three times + ... + Cross floor(n/2) times.) - _Benjamin Phillabaum_, Mar 13 2011

%Y Cf. A005566, A005568, A001700, A060898-A060900.
