Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A121482 Number of nondecreasing Dyck paths of semilength n and having no peaks at odd level (n>=0). A nondecreasing Dyck path is a Dyck path for which the sequence of the altitudes of the valleys is nondecreasing. 2

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,4,-2,-4,0,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: (1-z-z^2)(1-2z^2)/(1-z-4z^2+2z^3+4z^4-z^6).

EXAMPLE

a(4)=3 because we have UUDDUUDD, UUDUDUDD and UUUUDDDD, where U=(1,1) and D=(1,-1).

MAPLE

G:=(1-z-z^2)*(1-2*z^2)/(1-z-4*z^2+2*z^3+4*z^4-z^6): Gser:=series(G, z=0, 40): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n=0..37);
