COMMENTS

Binomial transform is A093967.

Binomial transform of (-1)^(n+1)(n*Pell(n-2)) (see A093969).

S-D transform of A001477 (cf. A051159). - Philippe Deléham, Aug 01 2006

a(n) is also the number of projective permutations of vertices of regular n-gons. A permutation of n vertices (AFB...CD) is considered 'projective' if there exists a line so that all the vertices can be projected onto it and the resulted points can be read in the same order: A'F'B'...C'D'. - Anton Zakharov, Jul 25 2016

FORMULA

G.f.: x(1+2x+2x^2)/(1-2x^2)^2;

a(n) = 2^((n-4)/2)n((1+sqrt(2)) + (1-sqrt(2))(-1)^n).

a(2n) = A036289(n). a(2n+1) = A014480(n). - R. J. Mathar, Jun 02 2011

G.f.: x*G(0)/(1-x) where G(k) = 1 + x/(k+1 - 2*x*(k+1)*(k+2)/(2*x*(k+2) + 1/G(k+1) )); (recursively defined continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Feb 01 2013

a(n) = n*2^floor(n-1)/2. - Anton Zakharov, Jul 25 2016

E.g.f.: x*(sqrt(2)*sinh(sqrt(2)*x) + 2*cosh(sqrt(2)*x))/2. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 25 2016

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 6, as there are only 6 projective permutations of vertices in a triangle ABC: ABC,CBA,ACB,BCA,CAB,BAC and it is equal to the number of simple permutations of three elements.

a(4) = 8, as there are only 8 permutations of vertices in a square, satisfying the projective criterion: ADBC,DACB,DCAB,CDBA,СBDA,BCAD,BACD,ABDC. ADCB is not allowed, cause there is no way to draw a line so that the projections A'B'C'D' of the original points form a line segment B'C' lying inside A'D' on this line. - Anton Zakharov, Jul 25 2016
