%N Generalized Catalan numbers C(2; n).

%C a(n+1)= Y_{n}(n+1)= Z_{n}, n >= 0, in the Derrida et al. 1992 reference (see A064094) for alpha=2, beta =1 (or alpha=1, beta=2).

%C a(n) = number of Dyck n-paths (A000108) in which each upstep (U) not at ground level is colored red (R) or blue (B). For example, a(3)=3 counts URDD, UBDD, UDUD (D=downstep). - _David Callan_, Mar 30 2007

%C The Hankel transform of this sequence is A002416. - _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 19 2007

%C The sequence a(n)/2^n, with g.f. 1/(1-xc(x)/2), has Hankel transform 1/2^n. - _Paul Barry_, Apr 14 2008
