COMMENTS

According to page 781 of the cited reference the generating function F(x) for a(n) is algebraic but not obviously so and the minimal polynomial satisfied by F(x) is quite large.

This sequence is the particular case a = 5, b = 1 of the following result (see Bober, Theorem 1.2): let a, b be nonnegative integers with a > b and GCD(a,b) = 1. Then (2*a*n)!*(b*n)!/((a*n)!*(2*b*n)!*((a-b)*n)!) is an integer for all integer n >= 0. Other cases include A061162 (a = 3, b = 1), A211419 (a = 3, b = 2) and A211420(a = 4, b = 1) and A211421 (a = 4, b = 3). The o.g.f. sum {n >= 1} a(n)*z^n is algebraic over the field of rational functions Q(z) (see Rodriguez-Villegas). - Peter Bala, Apr 10 2012
