COMMENTS

Also number of paths from (0,0) to (n,0) using steps U=(1,1), H=(1,0) and D=(1,-1), the U (or D) steps come in four colors. - N-E. Fahssi, Mar 30 2008

FORMULA

E.g.f.: exp(x)*BesselI(0, 4*x). - Vladeta Jovovic, Aug 20 2003

a(n) is also the central coefficient of (4+x+x^2)^n; a(n)=sum_{k=0..n} 3^(n-k) C(n,k) T(k,n), where T(k,n) is the triangle of trinomial coefficients = Coefficient of x^n of (1+x+x^2)^k : A027907 - N-E. Fahssi, Mar 30 2008

a(n) = (1/Pi)*integral(x=-2..2, (2*x+1)^n/sqrt((2-x)*(2+x))). [Peter Luschny, Sep 12 2011]

a(n+2)=( (2*n+3)*a(n+1) + 15*(n+1)*a(n) )/(n+2); a(0)=a(1)=1 - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Aug 01 2012

a(n) ~ 5^(n+1/2)/(2*sqrt(2*Pi*n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 14 2012
