FORMULA

The following conjectural formula for this sequence is apparently due to Ira M. Gessel: a(0) = 1, a(2n) = a(2n-1)*(12n+2)/(3n+1), a(2n+1) = a(2n)*(4n+2)/(n+1).

G.f.: (hypergeom([ -1/12, 1/4],[2/3],-64*x*(4*x+1)^2/(4*x-1)^4)-1)/(2*x). - Mark van Hoeij, Nov 02 2009

G.f.: (T(x)-1)/(2*x) where T(x) satisfies 27*(4*x-1)^2*T^8 - 18*(4*x-1)^2*T^4 - (128*x^2+192*x+8)*T^2 - (4*x-1)^2 = 0. - Mark van Hoeij, Nov 02 2009

a(n) ~ 4^(n+1) / (sqrt(3) * Gamma(1/3) * n^(2/3)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 17 2017

MAPLE

      `if`(x<0 or y>x, 0, `if`(n=0, 1, add(add(

       b(n-1, x+i, y+j), j=[-1, 1]), i=[-1, 1])))

    end:

a:= n-> b(n, 0$2):

seq(a(n), n=0..30);  # Alois P. Heinz, Nov 30 2015

MATHEMATICA

(* Conjectural *) a[0]=1; a[n_] := a[n] = If[EvenQ[n], (4*(3*n+1)*a[n-1])/ (3*n+2), (4*n*a[n-1])/(n+1)]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 26}]

(* or, from 1st g.f. *) s = (HypergeometricPFQ[{-1/12, 1/4}, {2/3}, -64*x* (4*x+1)^2/(4*x-1)^4]-1)/(2*x) + O[x]^27; CoefficientList[s, x](* Jean-François Alcover, Nov 30 2015 *)
