Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+2*z^2-(1+2*z)*sqrt(1-4*z))/(2*z^2*(2+z)^2*sqrt(1-4*z)).

a(n) = sum(k*A114588(n+2,k),k=0..n+1).

a(n)=sum{k=0..n, sum{j=0..n-k, C(n-j,k-j)*C(n-j,k)*(j+1)}}; - Paul Barry, Nov 03 2006

Conjecture: 2*(n+2)*a(n) +(-7*n-9)*a(n-1) -18*a(n-2) +2*(-7*n+19)*a(n-3) +4*(-2*n+3)*a(n-4)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 15 2012

Recurrence: 2*n*(n+2)*(3*n+1)*a(n) = (21*n^3 + 34*n^2 + n - 8)*a(n-1) + 2*(n+1)*(2*n+1)*(3*n+4)*a(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 12 2014

a(n) ~ 4^(n+2) / (9*sqrt(Pi*n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 12 2014

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2 because in the 2 (=A000957(4)) hill-free Dyck paths of semilength 3, namely UUUDDD and U(UD)(UD)D (U=(1,1), D=(1,-1)) we have altogether 2 peaks at even level (shown between parentheses).

MAPLE

G:=(1+2*z^2-(1+2*z)*sqrt(1-4*z))/2/z^2/(2+z)^2/sqrt(1-4*z): Gser:=series(G, z=0, 30): 1, seq(coeff(Gser, z^n), n=1..25);
