FORMULA

Product_{i=0..a-1} Product_{j=0..b-1} Product_{k=0..c-1} (i+j+k+2)/(i+j+k+1) with a=n, b=n+1, c=n+2.

a(n)=(-1)^floor((n+1)/2)*det(M(n+1)) where M(n) is the n X n matrix m(i, j)=C(2n, i+j), with i and j ranging from 1 to n. - Benoit Cloitre, Jan 31 2003

a(n) = (1/2)*Product[Product[Product[(i+j+k-1)/(i+j+k-2),{i,1,n+1}],{j,1,n+1}],{k,1,n+1}]. a(n) = A008793[n+1]/2. - Alexander Adamchuk, Jul 10 2006

PROG
