 A079280 Number of log-concave paths of length n starting from the origin (0,0) with steps from {N=(0,1), E=(1,0) and S=(0,-1)} that stay in the second octant and never touch the line y=x except possibly at the beginning or the end. 0

%N Number of log-concave paths of length n starting from the origin (0,0) with steps from {N=(0,1), E=(1,0) and S=(0,-1)} that stay in the second octant and never touch the line y=x except possibly at the beginning or the end.

%C The first S step can only come after an E step.

%F G.f.: (1-x)/(2-4*x) + (1+3*x)/(2*sqrt(1-4*x^2));

%F a(2n) = (1/2)*(4^(n-1) + 3*binomial(2n-2, n-1));
