COMMENTS

A038003[n] = A000108[2^n-1] = binomial(2^(n+1)-2, 2^n-1)/(2^n). a(1) = 0 because A038003[1] = 1. a(2) = 1 because A038003[2] = 5. a(3) = 3 because A038003[3] = 429 = 3*11*13. a(4) = 6 because A038003[4] = 9694845 = 3^2*5*17*19*23*29.

Odd Catalan numbers are listed in A038003[n] = A000108[2^n-1] = binomial(2^(n+1)-2, 2^n-1)/(2^n).
