 A089383 Number of peaks at even level in all Schroeder paths (i.e. consisting of steps U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), H=(2,0) and never going below the axis) from (0,0) to (2n+4,0). 1

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Partial sums of A026002. LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200 FORMULA G.f.: (1-z-q)^2/(4*z^2*(1-z)*q), where q = sqrt(1-6*z+z^2). Recurrence: (n+2)*n^2*a(n) = (n+1)*(7*n^2+4*n+1)*a(n-1) - (7*n^2+10*n+4)*n * a(n-2) + (n-1)*(n+1)^2*a(n-3). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 24 2012 a(n) ~ sqrt(1632+1154*sqrt(2))*(3+2*sqrt(2))^n/(8*sqrt(Pi*n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 24 2012 EXAMPLE a(0) = 1 because the paths HH, HUD, UDH, UHD, UDUD and U(UD)D from (0,0) to (4,0) have only one peak at an even level (shown between parentheses).
