%N a(n) is the number of words of length 2n in the language F, the language of "parity-constrained-shuffle of well-parenthesized words".

%C More precisely : Take a Dyck word on the alphabet {a,b} and a Dyck word on the alphabet {c,d}. I.e. you have 2 words with well balanced parentheses (a/b and c/d are considered as 2 sets of parentheses). Make a shuffle of these 2 words, with the constraint that each "a" at an even (resp. odd) position is closed by a "b" at an odd (resp. even) position. Impose the similar constraint for "c" and "d". F is the language of all such "parity-constrained" shuffle of 2 Dyck Languages. a(n) is also related to the number of ways of linking (without any crossing) even and odd integers (from 1 to 2n).

%C These objects were considered by Guitter et al., 1999.
