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

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The difference between this and A005316 is that here the river can also end up in the southwest. In A005316 it was required to end up in the northeast or southeast. Or, number of ways that an undirected line that starts and ends anywhere can cross an east-west road n times. LINKS S. Legendre, Foldings and Meanders, arXiv preprint arXiv:1302.2025 [math.CO], 2013. S. Legendre, Foldings and Meanders, Australasian Journal of Combinatorics 58(2) (2014), 275-291. FORMULA Equals A005316(n) if n odd, or 2*A005316(n) if n even (because then each solution to A005316 can be reflected in a vertical mirror to give another solution).
