 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS In general a(n) = (2/m)*Sum_{r=1..m-1} sin(r*j*Pi/m)*sin(r*k*Pi/m)*(2*cos(r*Pi/m))^(2n)) counts (s(0), s(1), ..., s(2n)) such that 0 < s(i) < m and |s(i) - s(i-1)| = 1 for i = 1,2,...,2n, s(0) = j, s(2n) = k. With interpolated zeros (0,0,1,0,3,0,9,...), counts walks of length n between the first and third nodes of P_6. - Paul Barry, Jan 26 2005 Counts all paths of length (2*n+1), n >= 0, starting at the initial node and ending on the nodes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the path graph P_6, see the Maple program. - Johannes W.
