Table of n, a(n) for n=0..14.

FORMULA

a(n) = 2^(n*(n-3)/2)*binomial(2*n, n).

a(n) = 2^C(n,2)*Hypergeometric2F1((1-n)/2,-n/2;1;1).

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := 2^(n (n - 3)/2) Binomial[2 n, n]; (* Or *)

f[n_] := 2^(n (n - 1)/2) Hypergeometric2F1[(1 - n)/2, -n/2, 1, 1]; Array[f, 15, 0]  (* Robert G. Wilson v *)
